So much going on and nothing getting finished- yet.
I posted here about first steps of tattooed people and fish, moving along with the foxes. That is still happening.
A week ago I spent a day dyeing.
I started out with some prints that I over-dye for hair.
Then ALL those tattooed bodies.
It was many pots worth. I was very tired by the end of the day. Then, next day I ironed them all and put them back in their bin. Soon I will start cutting out all the rest of their pieces.
I sewed faces on 9 foxes-
and started in on the clothes-
But I got a bit distracted trying to choose fabrics for dresses. I ended up spending a morning sorting through all my fabric drawers, pulling things out that called to me and in another pile, to get rid of.
Then, somehow, not really sure how this happens, I started sewing the fish mentioned in that link above. And now, 2 1/2 days later, all 29 are sewed up and waiting to be finished.
They will trickle out a few at a time over this year.
And lastly, Sweet Paul was in town last week and had a signing for his new book- so fun to meet up in my neck of the woods!
Of course I bought my very own copy of his new book- Sweet Paul Eat and Make: Charming Recipes and Kitchen Crafts You Will Love and had it signed. I need an occasion to make the World’s Best Cake! Anyway, I’m keeping very busy and soon lots of finished pieces will start to appear!
Wow Mimi, congrats on getting so much accomplished! I love all your in process photos, they tell an amazing and colorful story of your creative process. Thanks for sharing them!
Hi Mimi – I am so in love with your pugs and your foxes. They are just so whimsical and your work is exquisite!
