Here's a roundup of some stuff I've made lately for various people and occasions. I made this little owl for Sophie's graduation in the colors of her dorm decor for the fall. He is filled with beans so he functions as a bookend, or just sits nicely on the shelf.
You can also fold his little wings back for a glimpse of a contrasting stripe.
I painted this little trio of canvases to remind me of Micheal Pollan's mantra from In Defense of Food. The lighting is very bad because it is under the cabinets.
Very poor lighting, but I showed it so you can see where it is situated.
As soon as I found out the Smiths were moving I started this as a house warming project. I got the idea from this and decided to make my own 'homemade' looking version. I made one for us and want to make them for everyone.
When Nana and Papa were here at the end of May Nana helped me piece together my baby clothes quilt. I cut all the pieces a few months ago and she showed me how to tie it. I have quilted, but never tied a quilt. I used to consider them lowly, but now I can see their place in the quilting world.
I love looking at it because it includes clothes from all three girls- clothes I bought or received for Lola and then Bella and Fiona both wore, and a few unique to either Bella or Fiona. Some of them are even hand me downs that Eva wore as well. They feature so many cool details- ruffles, buttons, pockets, applique, logos...It is about the size of a crib quilt and we use it casually. I love it. What a great way to remember and incorporate your favorite baby clothes that would otherwise be stuck in a box collecting dust. This way you can see them, use them, and remember them daily.
I have a few more projects in the works right now, as well as lists of many more. It feels good.
