Spring Clean


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.

Hej Birgitte
Tak for din kommentar på min blog.
Wow nogle fantastiske ting du skaber. Da jeg nåede ned til Spiral of life tabte jeg da helt pusten. Hvor er den smuk, jeg er dybt betaget.
Skønt at finde så inspirerende kvinder her i blogland.

Good job getting things done. Sometimes doing those smaller tasks keeps me on focus. It's a great sense of accomplishment.

Hi Carla
Yes I agree it is good with a good tidy up session. Sometime I can have so many things on the go, that I don't get any thing done :-)
