yellow

Making average everyday things in yellow, the brightest yellow and sculpting tiny stuff, kinda realistic and at the same time super unrealistic egg muffins and honey bees. Toting around the sun in my oatmeal bags, thinking I should do more hand sewing because hemming the brim on the Oslo hat is so enjoyable every dang time. Feeling so uninspired at times and not worrying when it won’t feel this way, just doing what feels nice, keeping with familiar knits, small sews, and favorite suppers. Always cute, living life looking like some kind of Studio Ghibli character, thanks to a yellow hat with a little cold porcelain strawberry on it.

11/3/19 already

I feel like I’m so inconsistent and blurry these days, I blinked and October was over, only aware of time passing in the way you can see how the light has suddenly changed on the same routine drive home, or how its glow fills a room differently, and now even more so, because in the middle of the night we gained an hour. Time for the rotty pumpkins to be tossed into the compost, time for the orange plant to come in for another long winter (I’m amazed it has survived this long, it keeps getting bigger and I keep repotting it and I still feel guilty for always wishing it dead.)

In silhouette for HULK scale.

I made myself some Black Licorice Cat stitch markers, for kiki, for licorice and for year round spooks who love a little subtle sparkle. I made extra and listed them in the shop if you love that sort of thing too.
