Jatkuu...



Ma olen sattunud järjekordesse tsüklisse, sallide omasse nimelt.
Sedakorda on lisaks lihtsalt lõbule tegu ka suht ratsionaalse otsusega.
Etsyt pean silmas. Läks aega, mis läks - aasta ainult - ja lõpuks on pärale jõudnud, et mida vähem erinevaid tooteid, seda parem.




I'm a small scarf-making-factory these days.
Well, maybe not so small. And maybe not even a factory.
But you know, don't you, that you can find these babies with many other ones right here. :)

One-woman-show



Vahelduseks täristatud lapikestele veel mõned heegeldatud sallid.



Kui kevadel-suvel olid põhiliseks "tooteks" käevõrud, siis hetkel olen treimas just neidsamu salle.



Kuigi mul oleks hirmus hea meel, kui mul pidevalt mõni noormodell käepärast oleks, keda mugav pildile püüda.



Leida võib siit. Nagu ikka.

#3, #4, #5

#3
Here I used one of the leaf-motifs made awhile back. The bright one.
That's another purpose of this project - to get rid of all these bits and pieces I've made but never used. Felted and crocheted and needle-felted with machine. There are tons of them, trust me.




#4
Here's the piece of white lace on top of lining-fabric. (Is that how you call it in english?)
Bit of wool, pieces of yarn.

Just do it!

Do you think Nike's gonna sue me if i repeat that too often?



Here's the story:

* one night I was checking Sara Lechner's newest blog - whatiffingaround
* later on I was reading Layers of Meaning and this post led me onto Nancy Reiner's painting blog and to this particular post: Turn up the volume on the inner voice.
* soon after that I found Jude Hill's Spirit cloth and What if via fellow estonian textile lover Tiina.
* since forever I've been wanting to do many different things with my embellisher, including "something big" :)
But I've always postponed it "till kids grow and I'll have more spare time".
Only to realize that, yeah, they grow alright, but that doesn't nessecerely mean there's more time for me. If I just don't make up my mind and just do it.



So all in all - now i'm doing it. Just doing it.
Which means I'm taking a little bit of time (15-30 minutes, or depending on situation) every work-day to play with my embellisher. Without thinking twice. Just doing it. No plan, no nothing. No thinking about if it's gonna look good or have I lost my mind or shouldn't stay-at-home-mom do something more useful instead, haha :)



Was so excited about the idea that I made 5 pieces today.
Doodled first with needle-felting machine, then sewed it onto 20 cm x 20 cm piece of old sheet (using the same orange thread every time because of laziness) and finally painted the showing part of white sheet with acrylics. (and believe it or not, these were exactly the colors that my 5 yo boy was mixing before. i only used his left-overs.)



And later on, when I'll be done with doodling (month, two, five? who knows) I'll be assembling these pieces into quilt(s).
Images of 3 other pieces will be up tomorrow.

Sallid on uued, aga juba tuttavast seeriast.
Poodi.





New scarves are available in my shop.
More to come in near future.

Kotike

Pole saladus, et mul käivad nö "hood peal". Ripatsihoog ja lehekeehoog ja sallihoog ja moonihoog ja ...
Kevadel tabas mind korraks üks kotihoog. Mis ühel hetkel vaikselt rauges. Tulemus null - ei üthegi päris lõpuni viidud ridiküli.

Suurem osa mu asjadest sisaldab mitut eri tehnikat ning töö käib jao kaupa. Päeval muude toimetuste vahepeal (ja tihtilugu ka samal ajal) heegeldan. Ja õhtud peaksid siis viimistlemisele-kaunistamisele kuuluma. A nende õhtutega on nagu on, mõnikord tuleb vaim peale, teinekord mitte.
Ja neid heegeltoorikuid muudkui koguneb ja koguneb, sest päevane "vabrik" töötab hästi :)




Peale Hille kingituse valmimist otsisin mõned juba kevadel tehtud kotid välja, et needki lõpule viia, enne kui vaim jälle lahkuda suvatseb.

Selle helesinisega siin olen täitsa rahul.



Kuigi endiselt on nii, et kindlale inimesele või üritusele mõeldes, kukuvad asjad täiuslikumalt välja kui niisama tehes.

Eelmises postituses mainit bloog peab täna sünnipäeva. Sestap kutsus Delphine kõiki kaasblogijaid osalema nii õnneloosis kui palus riputada võimaluse korral üles paar pilti või joonistust sügisestest lehtedes, kastanitest, shokolaadist vms mida ta võiks oma tulevastes töödes inspiratsiooniks kasutada.
Siin on paar aastatagust pilti majaümbruses leidunud tegelastest:





It's La Fille du Consul's blog anniversary today. Bon anniversaire!
Therefore she gave all the bloggers out there an opportunity to participate in giveaway and also to post some picks or drawings of autumn leaves, chocolate or anything else she could use as inspiration in her future works.
Above are some wild shrooms growing near our house. Pics were taken about year ago.
