Sewing, Socks & Shells...amongst other things!
I've spent the past week doing a lot of sewing of scenery - above is just a snippet, the rest has to remain under wraps for now. Not much more left to do on my part, then the animation will begin in earnest.
I've also completed a pair or socks - quite an accomplishment for me, I hate knitting socks. I do like wearing hand knitted socks, so occasionally have to knuckle down and get some done. These are little ankle socks - chosen not only for the design but also for the minimum amount of work...
I made a couple of these - the first one for a gift, the next to use up all the shells I drilled holes in! These are winkles gathered last year in Alderney, such pretty colours. I have an identical bracelet from a few years ago and wear it a lot. This one is currently for sale in my Etsy shop.
The gift was for an internet pal of mine (Hi T!) from Arizona that I met for the first time at the weekend briefly as she was on stopover at Heathrow. I was given a surprise box of treats and souvenirs from Arizona - they must be the most travelled bits an pieces around, having been from the USA to Jersey and then back here. I'm trying not to shovel all the sweets in at once...
Finally the portrait commissions are coming in again after a worrying lull since Christmas. This a drawing of Clovis's best friend, a gorgeous little saluki cross. After this, I have a cat portrait to do.
At the end of the week is the local art society's exhibition - really ought to frame those pictures that are going in...
