weekend sketches


{saturday}


{sunday}

at a boring
meeting
i planned out
weekend
outfits


grub was in
NYC
this weekend.
so i tried
to make
some headway
on a
long
long
long
list of
projects
to be finished
and
packages
to be mailed.


bear mitts
for a friend...
modified
from multiple
patterns...

finally out the door...


lately
i have been
obsessed
with handmade
birds
with legs

like
these ones

have you
seen others?
i have been
trying to
design
one of
my own
{not to sell,
just because
i heart them}
more on
my bird
to come...

and
of course
a few
more purses
(photos
tomorrow)...
the end of knitting
and felting
is in sight.

a mellow
weekend...
mostly on the couch
with spot.


hope you
had a nice
weekend!

. . . . .

a quick
thank you
to
the amazing
ash
(aka sly.heart.west)
for her lovely
gifts...

thank you
ash!

until tomorrow.

i love the portrait of spot at the end. your bear mitten is making me insane with the cuteness! i am squeezing the computer but i find it plastickey and highly unsatisfactory. not like a bear mitten at all.
