As some of you may know, I am teaching a Kitschy Craft class at the Blue Ash Library.
I live in Blue Ash. I am, surprisingly, not feeling uber nervous about it. Maybe it's because I made a dozen of the Little Hearts we are going to make then hung them on a tree branch I spray painted blue. My favorite shade of blue, I might add. Maybe it's because it is still 2 1/2 weeks away. Maybe it's because I know it's going to be fun and there are 9 people coming so far that aren't necessarily from Blue Ash. Once I am in the room, it may change.
|I love these Little Hearts!|
I love holding a needle and embroidery floss in my hands, I love wrapping it around my fingers with a secret tug and loop, my secret handshake that makes blanket stitches...I love spray paint and coating something to make it new, different, what I have in my head now sits in front of me.
I made a diaper bag for my friend's niece. She picked out the Owls (Robert Kaufman fabric) and I set out on a mission.
The inside has a pillow, changing pad and extra bag that I like to believe is like a purse when you don't want to carry a purse.
I think the colors turned out nicely together! I hope she likes it!
I met a gal who sings with a voice that reminds me of listening to Emmy Lou Harris in my car, not so much that she sounds just like her, but more that feeling I get when I'm driving and Lucinda Williams is singing about car wheels on a gravel road. A place where the voice melts into my ears, like chocolate in a double boiler. The perfect temperature, tiny bubbles dancing. I made this bag for her. It feels like her.
Her band is called Sassy Molasses. She plays a mandolin, among many things. I think you would really like her....
