I love those prolific work days, don’t you? The kind where you set out to do certain tasks and it all gets done? That was me yesterday.
I wanted to do more of those pulp pieces yesterday, and I did three of them. They’re STILL drying! It was so humid yesterday that they’re taking their sweet time. I still have two full work days (YAY!) so I’m sure they’ll be set by later today.
I spent the majority of my day creating another of those Lutradur/machine embroidered pieces – this one I decided to do in earthy colors, and it’s quite a bit larger than the one I did on Tuesday.
This time, I also cut around the non-lacy part and used some ancient bulding materials (from a nearby building that had been renovated!) for the background. I think it looks either like a piece of rusted metal, or some sort of embroidered petroglyph. 🙂 I went through four whole spools of thread for this piece! That’s a lot of “scribbling”.
I also made eight new pendants! Here’s one of them (I didn’t manage to get a shot of the rest before I left for the day). I used my rust-dyed fabric and just followed the lines on them with my sewing machine. These will be for sale at Found + Collected! 😀
After my coffee, I’ll be heading back up to the studio to make more stuff. Who knows what’ll happen today? I can’t wait to find out. 😀
