The roads however have been a crap shoot. Snow covered,
and in the valley, the weird and chilling freezing fog.
It's downright spooky when you enter it.
Cue the organ music please....
To all who won in the give-away. I think I have all of your addresses and hopefully, stuff will get stuffed and shipped this week. Free is not always fast and this past weekend with spillover (our way of saying a holiday weekend), is turning out to be busier than I had expected. I am trading in my trusty Outback for another trusty Subaru Outback.
I had racked up the miles on my car over the summer and into the fall with daily trips to see my Dad and then almost daily trips well into December to help my Mom out. Things have calmed down and at 4 years old I figured it was a good time to trade in while the car was at a good point in value. So today I rob the bank and head over to Klamath Falls Subaru and switch cars. I love the Subaru dealership there. They pay their guys a true salary, not a draw and commission. It's a pretty painless process and no one descends on you like Weeping Angels or strong arms you into anything.
On the creative side of things, a new band is in process but other than that, the looms have been silent.
The sewing room has not. A few things got made up and two with fabrics that had aged in the stash for a while. The other two with newer acquisitions.
First up is a funky wool and cotton top. This fabric acts like a waffle weave.
It has been washed and dried. I paired it with a skinny jean pattern in a painted stretch denim. Both these fabrics are way out of my comfort zone but they it made for a fun and funky outfit I think.
This is some linen blend vintage fabric that had been marinating for a few years. It has a lot of drape and might have a fair amount of rayon in it. It worked up into a nice tunic and I do love those hot colors of pink and orange. My flash back to the 70's maybe. ;-)
Last up a little Mississippi top in some recently purchased lawn.
Right now it serves as a little under layer or paired with a cardi but come summer it will be a light and cool option for a hot day.
A few gift card purchases have been arriving.
The first one a nifty band/tape weaving book (Amazon), a lovely crafted little shuttle from Etsy seller Toplyfibers. Some beautiful things for weavers in that shop! And lastly, from one of the many Etsy purveyors of fabric, some cute cotton mushroom fabric. Some people like florals, me, toadstools! I have 3 different mushroom print fabrics in stash right now, maybe 4.
Parting shot: Hanging out.
