In the meantime, I was in the studio printing scarves on Tuesday and by now they are all steamed/washed/ironed/tagged/folded and are ready to go into my suitcase.
Here is one on my print table.
Here is a bit of another one, hanging to dry. Both of these look much better now, having been washed. These are not great photos, but oh well.
In the meantime, I have been putzing around in my sewing room, working on something I started a year ago and habe taken apart and sewn together too many times to count. I think it needs to be something else.
Post-haircut, at least you can see my eyes.
Yes, that is part of my vintage coffee/tea/other foodstuff (marshmallows, anyone? borax? bread curmbs? A stash of vintage tin signs downstairs -- no repros! Camel cigarettes, Winstons, a Tums thermometer, soft drinks that no longer exist, blah blah blah. Maybe I'll put them back up when/if I ever get the kitchen repainted. A 2015 project.
The spaghetti sauce is bubbling away and I'm trying to decide what else it needs. Probably some red wine but that means I'll have to open a bottle. Well, maybe I'll skip that ingredient. Fresh basil would be good but that means I have to go upstairs to the greenhouse/aka master bath, which has a skylight. And I'm too lazy. Garlic, artichoke hearts, beef, capers, anchovies, and I forget what else.
Enjoy your weekend; I will be scrambling to try and cram everything into one suitcase. Ha!
