After a very rainy May, we’re having a super sunny June so far, and I’m loving it! When I’m not working I’m spending all my time outside, near, on, or in the water or hiking and picnicking. I hope you’re enjoying June as well so far!

This drawing is from the June page of my birthday wall calendar. I updated it slightly for this year. I own many on the items on here, including the top, denim short, bikini and Birkenstock sandals.

Playing with Fiber Embellishments

👁️‍🗨️ HI DARLINGS! IN MY OPINION THERE SHOULD BE MANY MORE WORKS OF TEXTILE ART IN MUSEUMS. THIS ABSTRACTION OF LAURA IS BEAUTIFUL.

Daily Fiber

Ever since I wove a small tapestry on a hand-made loom, I’ve mused about weaving threads over a water color painting. So today I am playing around with the idea.

I started with this 4 by 6 painting I did last December.

It’s an exercise from Kateri Ewing’s book Watercolor is for Everyone. After drawing two columns of randomly sized rectangles, the artist applies selected colors, reversing the order of application in the second column.

I thought this painting would be a good background for my proposed thread embellishment because of its rectilinear structure. To start, I poked holes at regular intervals along the outside vertical edges. Next I stitched a zigzag pattern across the painting with no. 3 cotton twist thread in a gold color.

Now what, I asked myself. How about creating points along the thread intersections by tying knots? Okay. For this step I chose a…

may cushion covers – part 2

🌄 WELL SISTERS, TODAY ART IS ON THE PILLOWS.

skalabara quilts

This is the last post to show my cushion cover series for April and May 2021. This time I got out of the stash a rest of a Lotta Jansdotter collection. A very Scandinavian fabric design with clear colors and bold pattern motifs.

I started cutting the pieces depending on the scrap size. The first cushion cover I made was the one with the small squares. All cut size 2″ square and finished size 1,5″. The number and size of the squares define the cushion cover size : 10 x 10 = 100 squares (times 1,5″) = 15″ x 15″.

The next cushion cover I made was the one with larger squares. This time the cut size is 3,5″ and finished size is 3″ squares. The cushion cover has altogether 25 squares and makes up to a final size of 15″ x 15″.

Husband or Handler [part two]

💗🦶🏻WELL BEAUTIES, I LIKE PINK SHOES.

Husband or Handler [part two]

Scene: The Lounge

He slid in across from her on the bench seat at the Riverdale Glenn Bar, an upscale lounge with a live band playing Hip Hop music in the shadows. He looked good, so good. Relaxed. His blue eyes sparkling, his full lips upturned in a genuine smile.

This was the first date they had had in over a year. The first time they had laid eyes on each other to be more accurate. She missed him so much that even this little distance between them was too far. Why didn’t he sit beside her? He was her husband after all.

We have someone else joining us this evening Imogen, otherwise I would be beside you with my eager octopus hands roaming all over your glorious body”.

Dazian’s Patterns

🤸 🎩 HI DARLINGS! IN MY OPINION, THIS SKETCH OF A MAJORETTE IS SO FRESH. ALSO I CAN IMAGINE HOW WAS THE CHARMING LOOK OF MY ADMIRED AND NAMESAKE CARUSO. THE CREATOR WAS WOLF DAZIAN.

The Vintage Fashion Librarian

I’ve come across a few Dazian’s patterns over the years, and they’re always unique. Dazian’s produced some sewing patterns, always for dancewear or theatre costumes. The patterns I’ve seen have been for both women and children, though there are some even harder to find men/boys ones out there. I think the actual pattern line was pretty short lived, and although the ones I’ve seen always appear to be late 40s and early 50s, the company’s website states that they actually didn’t start putting out patterns until 1961. I would have never guessed.

Dazian’s as a company was pretty cool. They actually started with theatre costumes in 1842, and the company lasted over 100 years. It was started by Wolf Dazian, said to be the most knowledgeable costumer in history, though he also designed stage props. Dazian’s costumes were worn by such notables as Sarah Bernhardt, Caruso, Anna Pavlova, Al Jolson…

Today’s Art (6th June 2021)

📽️💟 WELL DEARS, THIS WORK HAS A SORT OF ‘CHIAROSCURO’ TECHNIQUE, AS LEONARDO, CARAVAGGIO AND REMBRANDT DID IT. 👉🏻 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiaroscuro

This is a digitally-edited 1990s-style painting that, whilst it took more editing than I’d expected, turned out better than I’d expected 🙂

And You Know That I’d Be Wearing a Dress

📝 HI DEARS. TODAY WE’VE GOT THIS EXQUISITE POEM ABOUT A DRESS. CONGRATS TO THE AUTHOR.

The Yellow Brick Ave

We could walk along the shore,
feel the sand squish between our toes
as the waves lap at our ankles,
gazing out at the mid blue waters
and the light blue sky,
and you know that I’d be wearing a dress.

We could traipse amongst the flowers,
leaning down to sniff the sweet aroma
of the roses and the lilies
as we follow the grassy path
through the garden,
and you know that I’d be wearing a dress.

You could chase me through the corridors of a castle,
dodging the cool, stony walls
and laughing vibrantly the whole time.
You could catch me in your strong arms
and pull me into you,
and you know that I’d be wearing a dress.

You could stand at the end of the aisle
surrounded by loved ones
as organ music swells and the doors swing open.
I could take one step into the…
