thanks for all the studio-love yesterday. since getting the it put together, I have actually been reluctant to work in there because I know it won't last. once i start working on something, it seems i am in such a frenzy at times that i just sort of forget to pick up after myself. i want to get better about that, because it ends up being way too counterproductive since i simply can't work in a messy studio. if i pick up after each project, i'll be all set for the next and i won't have to take the time to clean before i get started on the next thing. the only problem is that i rarely just have one project going at once. i'll need to come up with a space for my "works in progress".
i went into the studio this morning and got to work. i felt the powerful surge of inspiration and got to work drawing and designing some new things. i'm very excited about some of the new projects i have in the works.
i have been working on projects that are taking awhile to get finished, so i needed something quick. I sat down this morning and made this spring scarf. I have this impossibly soft cotton voile fabric with hot air balloons that i've been hoarding for awhile and waiting for the perfect project. I pulled it out along with a few other fabrics and got to work. on the back i used another paper thin swiss dot fabric. the result was a nice, light scarf perfect for the warmer days.
it also works in my hair...
(please forgive the lack of make-up and messy hair). it's so nice to actually complete something. i feel a productive period coming on.
on a completely unrelated note, i thought i'd share a couple of things i'm loving right now.
* the new blog for Blueprint magazine called Bluelines.
* this chair from CB2. Oh, i am in love...
* this game. thanks to megan for the tip.
* this book, which i just learned is being made into a movie.
