Scattered making

25 Jul

Because the world is still on fire, while the people in charge pretend not to notice how well aimed the flames are (they are not, after all, first in line to burn), I continue to struggle to read. Making things, on the other hand, is happening.

I hope to write a post for each of these things once I finish them, but in the meantime, a few teasers:

Close photograph of two seamstress dressforms about 2.5 inches tall, and a miniature old-fashioned "sewing machine" about 2 inches high by 4 inches long, all made of cotton fabric and stuffed tight. There's a button mounted on a pin to represent the wheel, and a tiny wooden thread spool, with thread on it, at the top.
Fifteen circles of decorative paper with  very simple string art in contrasting colors

Alas, none of these are yet ready for “prime time”, so to speak.

    […] had teased some about this earlier; I’m afraid there’s not a lot about the progress of making these, except that I saw a […]
