Glass Jars

a quick picture of the studio slowly coming together.
I love having my tools out where I can see them.
[please overlook these granulated pictures, I'm hoping Sinterklaas puts a camera in my shoe this year. although I will greatly miss the delightful drop.]

I just fell in love...with a store.
purl soho to be exact.
I was in New York for the weekend and spent 90% of my time in one store, one store.
[and I was thoroughly content.]
who knew fabric could make me this happy...

picture is not that great, but here are some of the fabrics I bought.
really love the Kokka fabrics and linen (surprise, surprise).
oh the linen was so beautiful...
I could go on and on about this store.
it was a complete delight.

also, I am officially in the UICA holiday artist market!
super excited about that.
Come and check it out on December 3 and 4.
I'll keep you posted with information as it comes.

The studio is a'movin'!

what a crazy week it has been! it is so much work to move, but I sure do love creating and organizing new spaces. (especially design ones!) I think this new space will be a great new home for lief design. pictures will come soon!

but for now...a recent lief design. sewn fabric folder. :)

inspiration = selvedge magazine, of course!
[lovely products found in the dry goods section of selvedge online.]

oh to dream of real linen sheets!
buy these Fog Linen Work Bed Linens here.

sweet wool felt,
in slipper form.
buy these Huopaliike Lahtinen Felt Slippers here.

all I need is felt and linen.
