lots and lots and lots

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!
