As part of the Year in Pictures group I spent last week photographing the process of sewing camera straps for the shop. Just one photo to sum up each day. I wanted to focus on some of the details that I get to enjoy every day while sitting at my sewing machine that others don't always get to see. Stacks of fabric, colourful pins and the magic when you turn something right side out and see that it's all coming together. It's so easy to get caught up in the chain piecing, endless ironing and piles of interfacing that I think it's important to stand back and catch of glimpse of some of the snapshots of beauty that happen while making.
Once I get back from Austin next week I'm going to continue the photos for the rest of February because I've enjoyed the results so much. (Next shop update will be Wednesday, February 25th at 7PM Eastern.)
Edited to add the Calendar reminder for the shop update:
In all the excitement of travelling to Vancouver for the holidays, I completely gapped sharing some other exciting news. Check it out, in the Jan/Feb '09 edition of Crochet Today, those are splityarn pouches! So rad. If you want to read the snippet, check out the large size on flickr.
