As the jet lag has finally waned (I never imagined it would take this long!), I am slowly getting back to a few projects I started before we left town. The first is a green maxi dress, which is pretty close to finished! I am in love with the color and the length of it, and I can’t wait to get the last few seams done and the hem put in place. When I was in high school, I wore nothing but long skirts and dresses, but over the years, I seem to have pruned all of them out of my wardrobe. I am looking forward to having something long in my closet again! This is the only picture I can show at this point, since the ones I took of me modeling it in various states of the process are just comically bad. I will get some nice shots when it’s all finished, for sure.
My other project is a square painting, to go alongside my circle painting. I love working on things like this, which come together color by color and shape by shape. They look different every time you glance at them, and I love that. Hope you are enjoying some fun fall projects too!
