So often it’s hard to blog because I’m just not sure what to blog about. For lack of any finished projects or deep thoughts, here’s a random sampling of what’s going on in my world right now.
There’s been a lot of work on our house projects, both by me and my mom and by hired pros, but nothing is quite finished yet.
Bathroom Vanity in progress: pro built, stained by me, I added hardware, waiting on a countertop and plumbing.
I took a block printing workshop with Valori Wells yesterday (through the Portland Modern Quilt Guild) which was lots of fun and jump started my thinking about fabric designs again.
I’m super happy with how these designs turned out — both from a printing standpoint, and a design standpoint.
I’m plugging away at several stitchy projects…
Hand stitching at the ready for quiet evenings.
… which have taken over and made more of a mess than anything else!
Lots of work in progress on my studio table and sewing machine. Nothing worth showing yet though.
Work at The Pine Needle is excellent, and I’ve got some behind the scenes projects I’m working on with the team in preparation of summer shop hops and our Fall catalog.
This is where I work — surrounded by a wide variety of gorgeous fabrics. That yellow, teal, and maroon whirligig sample in the middle of the photo is one I made. I’m working on an asian-inspired version now.
I hope you all are knee deep in fulfilling projects too; every little bit counts, even if doesn’t seem very blog- or Instagram-worthy.
