I’m still slogging away at the ship patterns – I’m through the armature making sections which is huge. Shooting for next week for release. If you’d like an email when new patterns are released you can join the list here. Sewing feels like a treat and a needed change of pace – way too much time with my computer lately. I’m working on a few new things.
These are mostly made from Sri Textiles – in a moody palette I find myself returning to again and again this year. There is also a wonderful bit of eccentric mending on the lower right.
The songbird is a little bit of a re- design. The songbird pattern was the only one I hadn’t backed up and I lost it – so frustrating. As soon as I finished the new design I found the old one in a mislabeled box. I’m glad I did it though – they’re different – the old shape is more stylized in a way I like and the new one has a more natural shape and I like that too.
And a button score! I used up what I thought was a lifetime supply of vintage and antique shell buttons – I use them for rigging ships and owl eyes. I’m back in buttons for at least a couple years I think.
