I had a very productive weekend! Not productive in the sense that anything got done...but I did manage to touch just about every art or craft supply that I currently own. So, I don't know what kind of productivity that qualifies as, but I had a very good time! haha I started out early Saturday morning with my cuppa joe and a few doodles.
Then, I pulled out a piece of toile I bought at a flea market a few years ago. It's been looking very lovely in my stash, but decided to put it to work. I'm making a sort of trench topper to wear over jeans, since jeans seem to be the only thing I want to wear lately, and let's face it, I need something long to camouflage the muffin top.
It's about halfway finished. This is when things get a little dicey, because not finishing something like this all in one sitting doesn't bode well for it's actual completion. I'm so in love with it, though, that I feel like I'll get back to it. I'm going thrifting with my oldest nephew on Saturday, and I'd love to wear it. Incentive is a very good thing. So is a deadline.
When I'd had enough sewing, I went right into painting. I have a show next month at Wholesome Blends in NE Portland. A coffee house of a friend of mine. So excited. And I'm painting like a mad woman to fill up his walls for a month. Again, deadline working its magic. haha
