Yesterday we took it easy around the house mostly. Zoey needed some rest for the little limp she had the other day and she seems fine today. I know she will wake up with Chuck in a couple of hours with that happy dog look in her eye, begging to go out on a walk. So it looks like a brisk autumn walk at the nature center is on the agenda for today
I was able to finish up my wet clay work and sanding for all my orders yesterday morning and loaded everything into a bisque kiln. I felt very accomplished! And I was left with nothing to work on for orders so I broke out with the sewing machine. I caught the urge to sew while we were in Portland and have been really wanting to find some time.
I made a new scented eye pillow, taking apart an old pillow that was stuffed with buckwheat hulls and lavender and filling it with that. I still have some left so I will make another. I also refashioned a boxy tee shirt that I had, making the neck a bit looser, the arms shorter, slitting up the side, and shortening it a bit. Then I added a few squares of pretty vintage kimono fabric for decoration. Much better now. I am going to wear it today and see how it feels.
I also got started on a scrappy fleece sweater for myself, piecing together several pieces of fabric that I got as remnants and had as leftovers. I worked on it until kinda late, and messed up the collar (I sewed it in backwards!) so I tore that apart and will have to work on it later. Maybe I will find some time today after I finish glazing.
