It Hurts Sew Good


I’ve been busy as of late, in spare moments, between driving gigs, getting ready for the Longmont Studio Tour. I was recently juried into the tour and even though it isn’t until September, I feel like I need to get a jump on it. My ankle biters (aka children – 10 and 15) take up a lot of my summer.


Here is a little stack of beauties that have kept my fingers busy and sore. I’ll do the big reveal right before the studio tour, so you’ll have to wait in suspense until then to see what they are.


This pic from my studio reminds me to get busy. I made a to-do list in my journal and have copied and posted it here as a visual reminder. I’ll be selling a variety of things: some journal/paper stuff, bead stuff and fiber stuff. Tick. Tock. For such a right brained person, I need a fair amount of structure to keep me from skipping the rails off into never-never land.


Here’s a nice detail.


I love this amazing button and the way the colors play together.


You may have seen this little gem of a cool thang hanging out in the first picture above. I scored it recently on sale at Anthropologie. I’m seeing a little theater scene with multiple layers and a couple of fiber figures hanging out in there. Hmmmm. How long til school’s out?

    Oh Lord.
    You remind me that it’s time to GET ON IT.
    “Suit up People!”
    time for my Power Tools so that i can keep up with you and Steph.
    I’ve sen all of this magic in person and it’s even MORE Beautiful in Person.

    Keep it up Frannie and I’ll be afraid to even glimpse into your studio for fear of passing out from the Coolness.

    Everything looks beautiful, and the score from anthropologie is sooo cool! I can’t wait to see what you do with that! I instantly thought theater, too.
