ny ny ny ny ny

I have reached some crazy saturation point where 5 days in New York makes me yearn for Maine!!!!'Never thought that would happen. From the work venue of the Javitz , to Eataly, to Bryant Park , to night-music at Washington Square : all good. But it does not put sand twixt your toes like a walk on Willard Beach........ah, home.

early to work

These days are full of busy : marking summer goods down to ridiculous prices, unpacking the bounty of winter clothing which arrives in scary, big boxes (did I order way too much?), and still trying to keep up with the daily 'make'.  Once in awhile, an amusing break presents itself, like friend Tonia's request that I fashion a little blue jacket for Peter Rabbit on his way to a baby shower....

twill tape story

Twill tape is a necessity of sewing. Miki directed me to a website and I ordered. I thought they would come in normal-sized spools of tape, but arrived in massive quantities ! I hung them on the existing nails in my sewing area, and only yesterday realized how many repeat shapes live in that corner. The painting is an old one of mine, one of several box-themed works at that time. The white cardboard shapes are my daily-used pattern 'blocks'. The plaster casts are a weakness of mine....I have a foot as well.
