This Week

It’s raining and dreary and I’ve gotten my errands done for the day.

A mug of coffee (or two), a quick post, and then it’s off to the studio to get to work!

I’ve cut a lot out this week, and sewn up a few things.

A soft little floral number--totally not the normal style of print I use, but something about it called out to me at the Fabric Store the other day!

I should have photographed more….but…..I’m lazy, and it’s raining!

A bustle, about to get some grommets

I guess that means a photo-shoot with my dress form this weekend.

We got a little portable record player last weekend, and I've been loving it!

As mentioned, I ran some errands today (which, sadly, is a Big Thing, as I rarely leave the house these days–unless it’s to the Post or the Fabric Store).  I snuck in a trip to the thrift store–which is one of my favorite places.

This gigantic wall hanging came home with me today--it's a batik image on fabric that has been mounted and framed.  I'd been admiring it for awhile, and bought it spur-of-the-moment today.  I love it!

I snagged some great stuff–tons of records, patterns, pictures….

The garden is in full swing, and I planted a few new things this past weekend–and they’re already popping up!

We’ll be canning this weekend–the first time for Hubby, so should be a good time! 

Hope you have a beautiful weekend–what are your plans?
