Spring Clean

Thursday, April 2, 2009

I have had a sort of spring cleaning today. Not in the sense that I have been cleaning the house, rather that I have been working on finishing a lot of small projects. Over the last couple of months I have been working on several batches of items to increase my stock for Autumn fairs, sales tables at our upcoming exhibitions and for my etsy shop. I needed as well to start preparing for an upcoming workshop that I'm teaching. At my Wednesday sewing group to day, we were having an 'own sewing day'. I had been debating whether to bring the long exhibition quilt that is slowly progressing or to bring lots of the tid bits that needed finishing of. I decided on the latter and I was very productive. One of the things I did was to cut a lot of 1 inch strips of fabrics. I have made a lot of straight forward coiled bowls, but would like explore the technique a lot more. And as I'm teaching the ladies of Sindano how to make the bowls, it is a perfect opportunity to have a good play. You might see the results in my etsy shop later on :-) I like taking technique and see how far I can push it.
