Holiday sewing

Just listed these items in my Etsy shop — clothcompany.  I already have some wonderful balsam-filled sachets to list, so look for those – and there will be at least two Christmas Kitties next week, and — dare I say? — a batch of finished dolls.

We will be making these simple and yet charming tree ornaments in the December “Sewing for The Holidays” class at the New Art Center [Newton, Massachusetts].  Class meets for three successive Saturdays — Dec 1, 8, and 15 — from 12:30 until 2:30.  There’s still time to sign up!

red plush, red foil

Red plush.  Is it a wound or a celebratory shout?  A place to investigate, or a place to avoid?  Soft, floral, with hard edges.

Red foil.  You are a secret.  A scrap of refuse.  A message of the ages.  A line of fire.  Emerging or disappearing?

Tripod inspired many sequences like the above, which I would love to animate.  Does anyone have a graphics package that does this easily, that they would recommend?

My photoshop elements 3.0 is happily sufficient for most things (I don’t want the updated version because I will have to re-learn things that are currently blissfully automatic!!!), but its quickest fade is one second.  Way too long.

Off to take one class, then back to teach Winter Session of Fiber Arts.  This ’round will be meeting here at the house instead of at the New Art Center.  I will not miss lugging stuff back and forth and back, again.  Today?  One stitcher has a new machine.  Another a landscape to continue.  We may break out the new pigma pens!
