I took a vacation from blogging this weekend to rest my creative word energies for all of the exciting posts to come when we arrive at the River next weekend. (Cats! Cocktails! Friends! Happy times in lawn furniture!) Instead, I used my creative hands energies to sew a bunch of stuff.
First, I made this swell dress/top modeled on Le Sac, which you may remember if you visited me on bed rest.
A few notes about this photo. First, notice how I match the small decorator pillows on the couch? Next, have you any idea how hard it is to auto-time a photo of your whole body from your laptop? A little behind the blog secret? Sometimes, it doesn't work quite right and quite a few photos are left on the cutting room floor.
(Do you feel closer to me now that I have shared the secrets behind my art?)
And, I made this bolster pillow out of the leg of a pajama that spit at the seams.
I am demonstrating one possible usage to Nick. Mostly, though, I intend to use it behind my knees. But, that would have required an even more complicated photography session. But, you get the general idea.
I also made a bunch of little sacks of cat nip. But those had to be hidden away as soon as they were made lest they be eaten.
Sew much sewing! (Get it? Sew! Homonyms!)
