A Little of This and That

I guess these are the dog days of summer.  I have felt pretty un-motivated lately.  Kind of like the best thing to be doing is putting my feet up!  Problem with that is - not much is getting done!  Oh, a little here, a little there, a little this and that.

Flap sweaterI've been working a bit on the Flap class doll.  I really need to give him his own name!  (That's something I can do with my feet up!)  But he has most of his clothes now.  Finished his jacket today and he has a helmet and goggles yet to go.  Oh yeah, and the wings.  How can he fly without wings??  He iP7260030s a fun guy to work on, but I have to say that those boots are INSANE!  They are cute and turned out pretty well, but why would I want to do that again?


The Studio Journal class is in week five and still going strong.  Lots of lovely ideas floating around!  We've experimented with several design tools on the web.  This stuff can get really addictive!  Last week (or maybe week before) it was kaleidoscopes:Iris-neck

This week it's dingbats!  (NO, not the students!  Those little symbol things that come in your fonts.  You know?)

I still need to do my Take It Further piece for July.  It is coming - slowly.  I have doodled lots of ideas in my journal and I think I know where I want to go with the theme.  But, every time I get ready to start on the actual fabric assembly, I get yet another idea and head back to the journal to explore it further.  This could take forever!

It's time for my goals review this week.  Perhaps I'll get to that tomorrow - or perhaps not!  Today it was rainy and much cooler.  You would think that would help the laziness, wouldn't you?  Ha!
