I'm a couple of days behind on the color fun, but here are white, black, and brown all showing up in a little Laura Zeck print on our dining room wall. Her tiny etchings are fantastic.
The past few days have been all about...well, maybe not exactly prepping for the upcoming show, but certainly thinking about it.
I've been doing glittery kid shirts for a while now, & am finally going to roll out a few designs printed on adult shirts at the show, which means that a couple days ago this (appropriately color-themed) box arrived. Yeah, that's a lot of shirts.
I've been kind of stuck on what designs to put on the adult shirts, but then last week I realized that I wanted to do a few craft-themed tees (particularly to take to the Maker's Faire/Baz Biz SF), & from there it was easy.
The new ink I was testing out was stinky & horrible to work with (although I actually personally like the worn-out look of a faded print,), so the art is good but I need to go back to my old ink for some nice crisp black prints. I love the sparkly thread, though, & am also going to use it on some little sewing care + content gift cards.
(Can you tell that I'd rather be working on my next quilt?)
In sneaky crafty moments here & there, I've finished up my little knitted spokesmodel Kate (first knitting project in probably over a year, first knitted toy ever). I think she'll be sweet on my table, particularly since I unpicked her head stitches & addressed the stuffing issue, so she's less pointy now (seriously, she was like the wooly little kitten star of Nosferatu).
In retrospect, I think that I probably should have changed to smaller needles for the orange parts, which were Lamb's Pride Superwash instead of LP Worsted, & that one ear has a definite Max Schreckian quality, but she's done!
(Now, let us celebrate with a picture of the happiest cardboard box on earth. I discovered this drawing when I was breaking down the shirt box for recycling. The shirt factory is a place of joy? My UPS guy is an artist in his other life? Who knows?)
