Winter Sun

OMG how can one tiny badge have made sooooooooooooo much mess. Thank goodness I work from home. I would be the worst person to have a desk next too in an office. Well as you can see I am sometimes not so productive at making stock but more so at creating chaos. ...........Nevermind......... On the plus side I have just had the best weekend hopefully the feeling is shared among the rest of you. I spent both days down on the beach at Watergate bay down in the depths of Cornwall. What a great patch of winter sun we had. I put the pop up tent up, took some stew, some surf boards two kids and a guitar. One of the best combinations (other than chocolate and coffee that is)

Origami Street art.

Finished a few more toys last night. I'm slowly getting through my stall stock whilst doing other sewing work. I seem to have lots of orders to get through at the worst time. There are rolls of fabric in my bedroom now as I am out of space in the sewing room. Its great being busy with work but the timing is bad. I have to learn to say no to things. I think that word has been over used with the kids lately and under used with my work life, the balance is all off........ I have also realised that I am becoming a bit obsessed with origami. I finished a cushion for my room and put my painting up today. I think this is the root of my current issue. Although origami infuriates me when I cant figure out the next part of a fold from a diagram (I often loose sleep over it when this happens),it is so fascinating to me and I really want to do a project with it. What I'm not sure yet...
However,whilst skiving from my house duties I also came across this brilliant street artist. Also a bit obsessed with origami.
I did a guerilla street art attack last summer. I put a fabric flock of birds in a tree at the local park. Its funny sitting on a bench near the scene and watching the reactions from passers by. I might try an origami something next to brighten up the winter months. I'll let you know if the idea goes anywhere.
Well I better stop blogging and actually get on with something now.... a cup of tea is in order I think, happy fireworks night, hope you all have a safe loud and fun fireworks display to go to, bye for now x
