We can finally hear the difference: less cars on the roads now; that ever-present hum of traffic has died down to the occasional rubber-burning hoon (with a lone police car in pursuit)…a wonderful silence is building as the long holidays approach. *bliss*
What have you been doing with the last slow days of the year?
I have been stitching more of these bright little felt rondels. They shape up quickly, and are a good way to get a color scheme or a combination of embroidery stitches out of your system.
Still not sure what I’ll do with them all, but I did quit my day job not long ago, so I will probably try to sell them. Should I pop them onto journals? Or make pendants, or ornaments, or brooches out of them? Hmm…what do you think? I’d love to hear your ideas, I’m hopeless at these things!
Also…I made cases for 5 flat-backed, case-bound journals. They’re covered in primed artist’s canvas (ready to paint on when the mood strikes!)…
…And, while I was making the cases, I photographed the steps for a tutorial on case-making—for the students of my bookbinding workshops (though I have just realized that I won’t be around to teach Term 1 next year! *sad* But I’ll be doing Terms 2-4, for sure!)
And I made miso soup with tofu, wakame, shiitake slivers, and a sprinkle of gomasso for lunch…(I just added this in so that I seem busier than I actually was…)
How about you?
