My desk today is covered in half finished projects I’m trying to complete.
I feel the need to tidy things up and get organised and this means trying to reduce the mass of plastic boxes stacked around my studio, waiting for attention. Some have been here for many weeks, in a few cases months.
It’s all very gold and red (normally it’s green and purple and pink on my table) and I’m enjoying the new colours. I noticed when we returned after the short holiday that the leaves had all changed on our school run, and in what seems like only a few days those beautiful coloured leaves have dropped leaving bare branches. Shame, I do like autumn colours and feel a little like we missed it this year, perhaps there is still time for a park or country house visit this weekend to take in the remaining show.
I made another acorn and leaves up for wrapping a present last weekend for a friend. I am half-way through a batch for the shop but it’s taking a long time to chain stitch the acorn cups and I have to spread out felting the acorns as it makes my hands very dry using all that soap and hot water. It’s fun though and I’ve promised the boys we can do some felt making this Christmas, maybe some decorations or cards for teachers?
That’s it today, short post and sorry, I’m behind in replying to comments but it feels quite hectic here even though the boys are back in school. Time to dig though draws and find all the winter woollens, my favourite time of year 🙂
