The tough get sewing.... OK, I was actually inspired by my friend Pattie over at the Joy of Nesting and the gorgeous sewing projects she's been up to lately. It has been a wee bit stressful over here getting ready for market this weekend and the studio tour in not nearly enough time. And besides, Pattie personally admonished me to get out of the studio for a little bit.
The dining room table was clear after a weekend with my son home and guests on Saturday. The timing was just right for getting out a project that's been waiting for a while. I love tunics. Not only are they comfortable, they hide all sorts of things in their roomy comfort. And I love to sew. I find it a wonderful stress reliever. That is when every thing goes right. And it is hard to go wrong with such a simple project as this one.
I think I'll leave fashion photography to the experts. That curly thing on the side is the end of a horn of my ram's skull. Nothing to worry about. Died of old age and no odd meaning. I just liked the shape of the horns. I'll show you the whole skull one day.
Meanwhile, I've returned to the studio. The kiln is firing with a few test pieces. But thank you Pattie! This was a wonderful break for me!
