Crazy productive weekend.
|Stitching the chain stitch edge|
the Phat Quarter
Do Not Eat piece for Salvaged Mutiny
. It is washed and drying. Tomorrow I will press and hoop it and send it off to her. FINALLY!
|Gnome boot for Maeve|
Made a little pair of gnome booties
for Brooklyn Maeve's Halloween costume. Will ship these off to my girl Erin tomorrow.
|Baked and ready to be devoured|
Baked my first ever galette (tomato, basil, sea salt and cheeses) for my fiber arts group, Durham String Thing
. They seemed to like it! Thanks to Keefie and Julia Childs for the recipe. A friend will get one this week just for him.
Hoofed my way through the Day of the Dead 5K Race
in Raleigh with the fabulous Juline. My time? Let's just say, I'm not speedy, I'm enduring. I'd tell you my age and weight before I'll tell you my race time! (Actually, I'm pretty open about both of those, so not good comparisons, but I'm tired.)
|I know it's girlie, but I love lush flowers|
After the race, Juline went to the Durham Farmers' Market
, where I bought my galette ingredients and my flowers for the week. Dahlias in deep pinks.
My only complaint is that I was alone so much. After six months of living by myself, I'm still getting used to this. I spent the days with my iphone on shuffle. Utopia
by Goldfrapp brought me special pleasure.
Thinking about new projects... portraits, both my mother's
and a new self portrait. Dreamt about an affectionate red dragon that kept burning my skin.
Feeling hopeful and playful.
