Many thanks to everyone who has chimed in for the Alphabirdybet print giveaway (don’t forget that you can leave a comment till midnight tonight!). Giving stuff away is so much fun. I wish I could afford to do it all the time.
It seems that I forgot to keep posting old work this week, but I’m tossing one last piece in since it’s one of my favorites. The drawings are based on a book of rare farm animals that I found at the RISD library. I kept the book for weeks because the photos were so great and the animals had the best faces + figures.
I tried making a small run of cards with the sheep, cow, and pig images on the front a few years ago. I thought they were really cute, but it turns that that it takes a special person to give a card with a pig on it (and probably another special person to receive it without offense). It was a nice idea, though, right?
[Speaking of animals, someone found my blog today while searching for “fish poop.” ???]
I hoped that my new holiday cards would arrive today so I can post them in the shop on Monday, but I don’t think they’ve even been shipped yet. I love my printer, but I think that every successive order has taken longer and longer to arrive. Must. Have. More. Patience.
I didn’t get a whole lot of sewing done this week so that’s my plan for tomorrow. Lots and lots of sewing. I’ve decided that hand-basting will save me a lot of ripping out in the end, but it adds a lot of time at the beginning. I hope you have a good weekend working on your own projects!
(And don’t forget that I’ll announce the winner of the giveaway tomorrow afternoon..)
