I need to work and play. I can’t just think about the floods and disaster. For over a week I have been focused on danger from the water and on helping others, and even though those worries are still present, and helping continues, I also need to work. But equally important is to play and let go of all the worries.
My spring cleaning odyssey is getting close to summer, but a lot of work has been done! First of all, my studio expanded! 🙂 My husband and I decided that we wanted a smaller bedroom and larger studio (for me) so we switched two rooms and man it is amazing! The bedroom is so warm and cozy now, and my studio is airy and less cluttered. I love it all! I will take photos one of these days, we just need to paint the walls first. But that change was a LOT of work! Moving and cleaning every little bottle and jar, finding new place for things to make everything organized, trying to make everything look neat and most of all reachable! I have to say, with the furniture that I have (I didn’t want to buy anything because this apartment is already full) I did a pretty good job. It took me ten days to finish both rooms, or to get close to that, but I am very pleased with how it all looks.
So, until I take those photos and show you the space, here are some of my latest creations.
A shawl made with scrap yarn that needed to be transformed into something beautiful. 🙂
I used thick yarn, thin yarn, shimmery one, wool, cotton, all kinds of yarn! I love to experiment and this shawl turned out very nice!
Another one is also woven with different kinds of yarn, but this one is way more colorful.
I also made an album for a customer who wanted it as a gift from the kids to their teacher, so she said it needs to have thirty blank pages, one for every child to do something on it. I had so much fun making this album. The only thing I knew I had to do is to put IV2 on the cover, but the rest was left to my imagination. So I thought a heart is a must because kinds love their teacher, then a bit of lined paper, a filmstrip frame because there will be photos inside, some crackle and some shimmer and glitter…
It’s quite big, almost A4 size, but there had to be enough room for the children to draw and glue on. 🙂
The most important thing is that the customer loves it! Yay! You just have to imagine more ribbon for the binding, because I didn’t want to tie it all now as it would get wrinkled, and also it needs to be all untied so that every child can have it’s own page to work on.
That’s it for now, even though I have more things to show you but they will have to wait. I don’t want to drown you in photos. 🙂
Have a great day!
