I'm joining Julia at Stamping Ground for week 311 of What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday. I realize this week's post is MUCH longer than Julia would like, but it's mostly photos, which can be scrolled through quickly.
Last week there were more than a few questions and comments about the dresses hanging on my wall.
These were made once a month during 2010, although I made two each in February,
March, and April, as part of a collaboration called Dress Up 2010.
Every participant was provided a pattern from which to create our dresses. As a mixed media artist, I created them so they were interactive and could be viewed from both sides.
It's obvious I didn't always use the pattern provided us, and usually used media other than paper. I often used fabric and other media to create each dress. I'm not sure which was harder, making the dresses or those silly hangers I hung each dress on.
Some commented on my storage. I've always said if you have no floor space, go up, and up I went.
The only thing I hate when I take an overall view of my room is the fact that I can't get these four drawers to close properly. For the longest time, three wouldn't close at all. Then I removed them and placed them in different slots. Now at least, only one won't close all the way.
WOYWWendy had to jump onto my sewing machine, because I purchased a single needle. It came in a multi-pack with others that I have no need for, but this will give me time to find a Singer center where I can buy the ones I need, since the place near my house is now out of business.
Wendy gets around. The photo hog hates to be left out of any photo.
Here she is, sharing the one and ONLY rocking horse you'll see on my desk this week. I also bought some summery (Independence Day) candles because I'm planning a big celebration that weekend.
Now she's jumped to the container I'm trying to clean out. Wish she'd stand still! But now I must get off, before Julia kicks me out of the club for hogging your time.
If coming from Julia's please leave your number so I can find you easily. I was able to locate and visit everyone who visited me, as well as a few extras last week.
