Can You Dig It?

Copyright Tattered Edge 2007
Well, it's finally gotten hot enough that I am hibernating, with the fans on all day. I am not now, nor ever will been a hot weather girl. Bring on Autumn I say!! I actually dreamt last night that I was walking ankle deep in fallen leaves and enjoying the crunch beneath my feet. Wishful thinking!

Part of yesterday was spent creating this "Laugh" Tattered Banner that was a commission. (Not the best photograph, but you get the idea.) I managed to complete it and it will go off in the mail this morning. I plan to do some more work on the "secret project" today. It's due to be mailed by the end of the month and I am determined to be finished before then because I will be busy prepping for a family camping trip.

This morning I was thinking of things I am digging right now and thought I would share my list:

-Vintage aqua blue and chocolate brown fabrics
-aqua rick rack trim
-polk-a-dots
-rayon ribbon (can't get enough of this stuff!)
-stickers made from my art
-striped baker's twine
-old mother of pearl buttons
-small glass bottles
-old lace to dye
-Ikea's barn red organizers
-random collage bits (text, old ledger paper, etc.)
-my little label maker machine
-the zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine
-polished toes
-wearing sandals
-singer/songwriter Laurie McKenna's music
-my new shades (my old pair self-destructed)

What's on your list?

My list would include 80 degree temps, but not leaves yet.

It would also include a completed curriculum for fall (hence the no leaves yet!).

Tuskineko inks that I just bought and haven't played with yet.

A clean play place (not enough time yet, though).
