Finishing Touches

I've added some microscopic buttons to Alvin's shirt and he's appreciative.

Then I made Tom Daley in his infinitesimal Speedo. Initially I 'd planned to adorn him with a bronze medal but once he was done, I decided to forego the medal in favor of a belly button made from a French knot. You may be able to see his outie by clicking on the photo.

Yesterday was the day. A wise friend had advised me to wait on the studio clean up until the weather was cooler. Yesterday was somewhat cooler and I really couldn't stand it any longer, so I spent many hours down there and now it is immaculate. I was once again astonished at how many WISPs I have. I made a list of the ones I uncovered yesterday and am determined to do something about them before embarking on a new grand effort of some sort.

Now that the little people for the swap are finished, I'm tackling them and will post photos. Currently I've moved a pair of mug rugs for people who did me a favor in June and a hospice infant quilt to the hand-stitching area. Today I'd like to get my give-away mug rugs made so I can mail them on Wednesday when I make a run to the Mailboxes place.

What a dull post this is. But I'm feeling good about what I accomplished yesterday. Joe's sleeping in this morning, so I'm off to take Blackberry out for a walk.

OMG those speedos sure are little...are you sure he doesn't need a bronze medal...I've really enjoyed meeting all your "people"...

Dull you may think it - but there's no nicer feeling than a tidy and orderly sewing room to get you back in the mood for some serious stitching

Dull post? Any time we can take a peek at a hunk in a speedo is certainly NOT dull! Your little people are absolutely wonderful, and so very Nancy.

I want to tackle my sewing room as well, but need a husband-who-shall-not-be-named to move his darned storage boxes out of there first.

Feeling good about what you've done and sharing is not dull my friend. Seeing those cute little guys is fun, too!!!

How can you call a buttoned up Arnold and buttonless (and almost everything-else-less) Tom, dull?
Oh, to have an immaculate sewing room! Enjoy it. : )

Nancy, I've been very entertained by all your posts about these people you have created. They're too cute and I love the biographies you've made for them.

Can we see pictures of the new and improved sewing area?

Never a dull post...especially if there's a speedo involved.
