And here is a pic of my December Tiny Worlds-
I haven’t put any of these tiny worlds into my etsy shop yet because I am doing a show next weekend and I am focusing all my time on making pieces for that. The show is the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival. Come and see me is you are in the area!
I have had a lot of fun with all my variegated threads on these tiny worlds.
I am back to work. I need to get back to posting though, since I am beginning to get a backlog of these Tiny Worlds.
Firstly though, I’d like to thank everyone who reached out to me with condolences- I really can’t convey how much it meant to me. I know that most of us don’t know each other in person, but I was truly touched and comforted by your words.
Anyway, pincushions 4 and 5-
My desk has been covered with Tiny World pincushion parts and materials for the last week or so. Unfortunately, I had to leave that all behind on Tuesday to go to Connecticut because my Mom died. When someone is 100 and has not recognized me for years, I guess dying can never be called unexpected, and yet, wow, all the feelings and processing. And getting out of my little nest/comfort zone/studio, into a whirlwind of family and decision making. Goodbye Mom ♥
I’ll be posting what I had finished and photographed right before I left on Tuesday.
The last thing I want to mention that I love about LA is the food- we do tacos, tacos, and tacos. Also fresh fruit and veg- we had strawberries from a farmers market like I have never tasted in my life!
And lastly, I’ll mention the Getty Villa. I enjoyed the collection although a big part of the museum is currently closed. Loved these weird bird, fish, lady creatures.
What comes next? I am doing the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival, Saturday June 3. I will be working toward that, right up to the last minute I’m sure. Tomorrow, some new finished pieces!
There isn’t going to be much posting this month. I am off to LA tomorrow and this month has mostly been preparing for it.
I am teaching 3 Tiny World classes plus an ornament class- that is approx. 70 students! I made samples and refreshed my memory of the patterns.
I did some pre-work for the classes so hopefully people might finish their tiny worlds in 6 hours!
I loaded up a TON of supplies and shipped them out to LA. I figured it was better to have too much than to run short, right? Also my tools which might be a little iffy getting onto the the airplane.
After the boxes were shipped, I was able to breathe a bit and did some sewing for things I will finish when I get back. Then, I made some clothes, because I always seem to feel a need for new clothes when I am going on a trip. Here is one of my new shirts, first try-on.
That was earlier today. Now it is all hemmed up and has buttons and is packed in the suitcase. See you next month!
