When I left the studio on Friday I prepared to do some sewing here at home...first, Saturday was Derby Day and much of Louisville is deserted, as the place to be is at the track in south Louisville and Mellwood is not high on the Derby celebration radar...I mean literally the streets and stores outside of south Louisville are ghost towns. Second, Peter will be on vacation this week and I wanted to have the option of hanging out with him without loosing progress.
Even though now I am not conditioned to create here at home, I had Ade pull my machine from the shelf and I got busy baby! A return to my roots...right at the kitchen table. Carter, my grandson came in and him being
naturally destructive curious about how things work immediately started bombarding me with questions about the sewing machine even before he said hello. Nana, what are you doing with this? how does it work? did you bring this from your studio? I've never seen this before...I re-directed him quickly after answering a few of his questions but I know I will not be able to blink once without him trying to "make it go" only to blame it on his sister when he is caught...I'm going to put it back up on Tuesday so I will not have to disown him over my sewing machine...yeap, just like old times at the kitchen table creating texture on cloth.
Adding texture...and in this case I think more is more and more is needed. I'm just getting started so this is just a tad of what I have planned. Oh, and I forgot how smooth sewing goes with Isacord threads!
