they weren't as itchy this time....
...remember those itchy tights? Well, a few washes later and the "itch" factor seems to have died down quite a bit. (thank goodness for that!) I am a bit hooked on these tights, and thought it would be fitting for an upcoming magazine article about myself and my workspace. With a quick call to my lovely friend Thea, an afternoon was spent with some good coffee, great chit chatting, and really fun photography. We decided to put my sewing machine on my lap, as it truly plays the role of a pencil when it comes to my own approach to fiber art. I don't use a pencil when it comes to the stitched work, but rather use the machine solely as my drawing tool. What do you think?
...along with my "fashion" shot (can you tell how hard I am, yet again, trying to disguise the lack of any chin? There's really only so much one can do....), came the need for a basic studio shot as well. It may not be in full-view, but what it does showcase is the corner that I find most inspiring.....that one little spot that I find comforting, and in a perfect rainy day, can become the most comfortable space to be in. Thea captured it so well, and the collaborative process in itself was so inspiring. It's been a long time since I have gotten together with someone and brainstormed ideas back and forth, which was much needed. (even with a heavy sewing machine on my lap......)
