new studio shelves!

studio update! Thanks to my wonderful friends, I now have shelves upon shelves in my studio! I couldn't wait to put stuff on them, so maybe this summer there will be time to paint them.

I love you, fig!

Better than a granola bar any day! I'm loving the sweetness and the texture of figs! Such a yummy snack. Fyn really likes them too!

gnome snowsuit revamp

While many people were kind enough to share their children's clothes with us, we have chose not to have clothing with cartoony or cutesy characters on them. Here is my solution - sew a wooly patch over the offenders!
This little gnome is simply a triangle of fair isle wool (felted), with a cashmere oval for the face. Inspired by the little gnomes from Fyn's birthday party. It took a little figuring to make sure the whole image underneath was covered by the new wooly gnome.
Since the wool is felted, I just sewed it on my sewing machine with a straight stitch! And, it didn't take long at all. I've washed it a few times in cold water and it worked great!
