Give Me A Break

I've been feeling bored and uninspired. It rarely happens, and it's probably because of this head cold and forcing myself to work. When I was younger, a cold lasted only a few days. It's not like that anymore.

Before I began keeping this blog, I made wired doll bodies and wrapped them in strips of batting. Now they have an outside-wrap of silk strips taken from kimono linings.

Synthetic kimono lining is great for cutting into narrow ribbons and making into florettes. The edges have been seared over a flame to stop fraying.

What a surprise to find wool/acrylic embroidery thread on a spool!

I'll be back when I feel "up" again. I'm never away too long.
