Summer Schedule = Completed Projects

I’m just settling into my summer schedule here, and sure enough, it’s almost over!  Just 7 more days of foster kiddos summer work experience…..which means just 7 more days of being out of the house at 6:20AM to get him to the bus stop and the reverse at 6PM for the pick up.  

The plus side of the schedule change has been the ‘found’ time while waiting for said kiddo.

From Dog Beds to Wedding Gowns

I go from one order to another each day here at Stitchknit and the variety is my favorite part.  That, and learning new techniques along the way. But, some days are just odder than others……..and today, moving from the custom dog bed to the wedding gown make over, made me stop and ponder the types of projects I see here.

Switching gears and not having a need to finish every project works for me.  I squeeze in the fixes…..the alterations, in between the bigger projects needing additional fittings before I’m willing to move forward.

So, a day would look a bit scattered to most………..and absolutely productive and creative to me.  

Almost finished....denim on one side & fuzziness on the other.  Should be a happy dog!

Sorry, no pictures of the wedding gown.  Still a secret from the groom.   Know that I’ve spliced in yards and yards of white silk and tulle, along with sequins, pearls and embroidered overlays…………all morning.  Everything wasn’t black, gray and tan in the studio!  

Jumbo Junket and Hans Moller

vintage fabric at Stitchknit

I fell in love with this when I saw it.  Bright, great fabric and yes, a touch odd.  The date was on the selvage, along with created by Hans Moller and the title of the creation, Jumbo Junket.   I’ve begun to research this gentleman, his art and his connection to the Association of American Artists.  

Things like this fabric surprise me.  I have always been drawn to vintage linens of any kind.  Any era.  If it’s fabric, I’m wanting to get all touchy-feely with it.  

This one even had the road map of sorts, printed right on it.  Research ensued.  Right away.  My favorite thing I learned about him was a line in an interview about how he couldn’t wait to get up in the mornings….    to decide what color to work with that day in his paintings!

This bit of vintage fiber goodness is now in my shop, waiting for a good home!  You can see it here!

Off the Hook at Stitchknit

Crochet scarf from Stitchknit

Love the color…………a blend of almost pink, a touch of gray and orchid.

Love the yarn…………acrylic, soft, with a bit of a halo effect

Love the pattern…………easy to remember, don’t have to concentrate on just my crocheting
