lately, i find much of my time to be wrapped up in wedding projects and planning, but a part of me can't wait for this planning to be over so that i can focus on fixing up the shop! i feel pulled in so many directions at once and have so many projects and new items waiting in the wings. i find myself glancing at the piles of fabric yearningly; there's something about uncut fabric that just leaves me chomping at the bit!
the first big thing on my project to do list will be a few new aprons...new fabrics, wider ties, and some pleats i think! the second big project will be making more linen and flour sack dishtowels using the linoblocks pictured above, among others, which i carved after my own drawings. I just need to have an entire day to print a whole series of apron pockets and towels, in addition to the polka dot ones i currently make. then i can embellish these printed designs with a bit of embroidery to accent the handprinted shapes or compliment the fabric patterns used.
i can't wait to share the finished items with you...in the meantime, it seems i'm going to be a very busy little bee!
