Saturday at the studio
The new studio contains well over 750 square feet and is filled with flat table tops, a sofa, and assorted chairs (one of which is permanently set up as a tented resting place for Inspector Suki). She, of course, chooses the highest stack of comfortable folded fabric as her spot. I wonder if, like the princess in fairy tale stories, she could feel a pea buried in the layers of the matresses. I'm betting Yes!
From last week's jacket class....
The back of Marcia's kimono jacket becomes more complete. The beautiful hand-woven silk (which Priscilla brought back from her last trip) is framed by equally spectacular hand-dyed fabric by Marcia Murphy from Long Island. The long strip on the left has been sewn and is ready to become the neck band.
These are the two front panels for the jacket and the sleeves.
The cold winter weather calls for homemade warm bread. Our old breadmaker was hauled out of storage and produced a loaf of "Cornell" bread (complete with soy flour). It toasted up just fine, and topped with homemade preserves, provided a delicious desert!
