By Air and By Sea

I'm the kind of person who can't sit still. If I am sitting still then my hands have to be occupied somehow. I guess that's why I like to hand sew so much. Usually I can work thru most of my bouts of illness but not this time. So when I was upright again I was feeling very behind schedule (a crazy, unrealistic schedule that I delight in making for myself!) and kind of worked overtime to get some things done. Luckily my patterns were already made and just waiting for me.

I'm making a new line of owls...can't seem to stop making them. They are called Psychedelic Garden Owls. They are vintage inspired with a floral theme. I have several designs and the first completed is below. They will be one of a kind soft sculptures. If I repeat a pattern the colors will be different so each will be unique.


I've also been working on the rest of my Under the Sea themed items too. Mermaids, octopus, crabs, fish, etc.
The mermaids are still a work in progress. I'm waiting on my product tags so I can finish sewing their tails and then they will swim along to my shop.

This is Arnie The Anxious Octopus. A tough design for me but I finally figured the mechanics out.

He's so cute I might have to keep him. Hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've been up to. What do you all have going on lately?

Glad I finally got the courage to try the harder, more detailed designs. So happy to hear that my efforts are appreciated.

I'm the same way - can't stand to sit and not be multi tasking somehow! (I do it when I'm exhausted, but I hate it!) You are sooo creative and prolific in your creations! Lately I've been making pillows - I blogged about it today!
