For home handwork (as opposed to studio work) I created a cuff. The body and lining are made of silk scraps from a chasuble I made, the lace is vintage, and vintage shell buttons provide an adjustable closure. Thanks to Gunnell for the pieces of lace she shared with me.

Repurposed woolen mittens
Tucked in a corner at the Chatham Real Food Market Co-op you will find a small sampling of my woolen handwork. These items are made in those moments between working on the banner and taking care of my family and self.

Dolls from a vintage pattern
Over the holidays, I worked (as time allowed) on dolls for my granddaughters.
Much of the sewing was done by hand, which meant I could do it from bed. In addition to the clothing you see here, I created miniature sweaters for these two from re-purposed felted lambswool and cashmere sweaters.
The package is still on its way to them, a bit late.
Now I can return to my beloved banner project.

Made of cotton fabrics via applique´.
