It's been a busy week. My tutoring job is picking up and I have several new students. With my wrists feeling better I've also be going for knit nights with my friend again. Of course now I work evenings so they have become knit mornings. I must come up with a cuter name then just "morning knitting"... any suggestions?
I've also been sewing a bunch of new stuff for the shop, which will hopefully be posted in a week or two. Somehow I managed to find a little bit of time to sew myself something too. This blouse has been on my "to-sew" list for ages. The fabric is a very light poly-cotton blend which doesn't wrinkle, making it the perfect blouse for to wear to work. I dressed it up a little for knit morning with a hat and skirt/vest combo.

Like my new pillow?
Yup, I now have a Buster Keaton pillow. Isn't it awesome? Want to know what's even cooler? I made it myself! I'm stupidly proud of this pillow but I love it so much. I used inkodye and a printed transparency of Buster. This was my "test project", and I have a bunch of other inkodye projects planned. I just adore the effect and it's really easy to do!
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
