Stash Enhancement, and Some Fuzz

Look at the fabulousness that arrived today from Funky Monkey Fabrics!

Not pictured is 2 yards of purple travel knit. The lemon-print fabric is cotton/spandex knit, and the rest are woven cottons. The fox-print is slated to become a Montrose with black sleeves, and the rest… well. I haven’t quite decided. Tops, I’m sure, but I haven’t settled on which.

But speaking of Montrose, I’m working on a dress hack at the moment from some leaf-print green cotton that’s been in my stash for at least five years. I need to sew in elastic and waist ties plus hem the sleeves and such and it’ll be done… probably not in time to take photos outside before the sun sets, though, and tomorrow it’s supposed to rain. Hmph.

Parker is ‘helping’ with the process, naturally.

He’s not actually much help, but he’s cute enough to make up for it.

here’s to opening and upward,to leaf and to sap

Starting off with a bit of e.e. cummings, this time.

Who am I? My About page says it best: I’m just another Atlantic Canadian with a camera, a pile of knitting needles, a couple of sewing machines, and a herd of cats. I work in healthcare by day and spend most of my evenings with fur and fabric and yarn and lenses and speedlights. This isn’t my first blog, but I’m starting from scratch because sticking to a single topic never seems to work for me.

I’m kind of a nerd. I’m definitely a geek. I’m plus-sized and body positive. I have chronic (mental) illness and sometimes blog about it. I’m mostly self-taught on all fronts and I will make mistakes, but I’m learning how to laugh at them and move on.

It’s a process. And so is this space.
