How do you manage to keep the creative vibe going when you are working on a production line?
In preparation for next months market I have quite a bit of sewing to get through and am finding it difficult to get motivated............
So, still thinking about strawberries, I decided to have a change of 'scenery' and have made some sewing needle books with strawberries rather than the usual chooks.
The weather obviously is influencing my creativity and Spring themes are in the air.
It's taken me a while but I have found a few little tips and tricks to make the job of sewing multiple things a little easier.
Obviously, a production line of drawing, cutting and sewing makes the process quicker but new designs no matter how simple make it more interesting.
The back looks just as interesting as...........
'Berryliscious' is obviously an amalgamation of delicious and luscious !!!!!!!
I think you know what I was getting at..........
There's plenty more sewing to be done, so hopefully I will keep working away at it building up stock slowly rather than my usual last week rush.
After two weeks away No. 1 has returned home.
While he was way up north at Airlie Beach he picked up some sea glass for me............
Discarded glass tumbled and smoothed by the ocean and then thrown up on the shore.
I love it and the fact that he thought of me and bought it home.
The blue piece is beautiful and reminds me of the black faced sheep down the road..........
After being away for so long he was keen to get on the ride on mower and mow the 'lawn' green stuff outside so it looked cared for...........
Who was I to deprive him off this pleasure?
Another little job he likes to do is keep the glass screen on the wood heater clean.
Two weeks of soot build up wasn't going to move without some elbow grease.
He did suggest I could've cleaned it while he was away.
But once again who am I to deprive him of the satisfaction?
And you do know if you can see the flames, you feel warmer!!
I have to smile to myself, when he says things like this. Not that long ago he was having a dig at me about being so fussy as to how the housework and certain jobs were done.
Now I see it coming out in him and I just smile...........
Don't get the wrong idea, I am definitely not an obsessive housekeeper............
Read: don't turn up unannounced, you might be in for a shock, hehehe............
The fine weather continues and trees are blooming well out of their usual time.
The Manchurians are still putting on a lovely display. The first is now in leaf with the second just in blossom. The bees are having a field day.
The Crab Apples are starting to come out in leaf and it's still August (just).
A beautiful time of year and it's so nice to have sunny days, but once the sun disappears behind a cloud, you do notice the drop in temp.
I am slowly but surely getting on top of the weeds in the garden, along with the help of some feathered friends.
I wish I had their eyesight, they are so quick to grab the tip of a disappearing worm or grub.
Akin to crop circles.......but I know what causes them.............
Two weeks ago I noticed these 'interesting' vapour trails in the sky.
Obviously there was fog at Tullamarine airport in Melbourne and they were killing some time till it cleared.
Or were they just bored?
It made for interesting viewing. I wonder if anyone else noticed?
I love seeing things like this..........
Well, that's a little bit of news from the Sweet Birdy Love household.
I hope your week is going well and that maybe you see something small and discarded , the beauty of which makes you smile.
Thank you for taking the time to drop by and see what I am up to.
Till next time, take care,
