…not alot of words, just photos of recent work!
I cut up an old leather jacket that didn’t sell on etsy, and got lots of great leather pieces….this was just something quick: THE CUFF:

HBI has been spending time in the studio with me….using the sewing machine, making what he plans to be ‘flags’. The top one has already been modified and is hanging on the studio wall with a chain attached to it. “Mom, I like it MUCH better with the chain.” I’ll have to get a picture of it….
I’m encouraging him to look at texture and patterns and find interesting combinations.
This next one is a little stroller quilt I made for my friend Kahla. It is made out of men’s dress shirts for her new little baby boy! I left one shirt pocket on so there is a place to put his pacifier…!
oh man…I have like 4 other things on the go out there…just haven’t photographed them….I’m sticking mostly with fabric it seems, but this little project only took a few minutes…:

Here’s just a sneak peek at something currently on my table:
