where I share some of what I’ve been making each week, and invite you to do the same…
This week I fixed up a(nother) favorite old sweater. A sweater so warm and comforting that just thinking about putting it on creates a bodily ease. Do you have a sweater like that?
Well the elbows were becoming threadbare (I am hard on elbows, apparently), there was a hole in one arm, and it still needs a thorough pill picking, but I love it more than ever now.
I also fixed up a classic studio mess. I make a lot of lists, and write all manner of important notes and reminders onto scraps of paper. I love to reuse, I do not like waste, and there tends to be a trickle of misprinted and half printed sheets of paper I keep around for using again. These papers pile up around my work tables and can create a low grade frustration, always in the way and disorganized.
So I made a book out of them! A couple holes punched and some loops of leather later and my migrant scrap pile is now bound and neatly hung. I can add to it or subtract from it, reuse scraps to my heart’s content, and it’s easy to locate and leaf through. So simple. Satisfied.
