Dreary weather

The weather has been dreary for the past two days. I’ve been sewing away like a madwoman, needle a-flyin’, scissors a-snippin’, rulers a-measurin’ (okay, that last one was a stretch). But alas, I have no decent photographs to share.

I finished the yellow octopus pillow from my previous post, and I’d love to post it in The Boutique. But the light outdoors is dim and gray, and when I tried to photograph the pillow, it made the fabrics look dull and faded and a bit washed out. So I won’t post it until I can take pictures that do it justice. But here’s a peek.


Here too is a peek at a pillow I’m working on for our home.

It will be this guy’s companion.

I was tagged by Hannah over at Journal of a Rock Angel with an interesting mission: to show my desktop.   


My desktop wallpaper is a painting by artist Natasha Wescoat. She uses a lot of bold circles and swirls in her work, and her stuff is dramatic and graphic but really, really beautiful.

I’m glad I was tagged now, when I had this painting on my desktop, because normally I have a picture of my cats up there. I know — lame!
