Tuesday . . .
Tuesday . . . right?
HUP !! . . . the Netherlands is going to the World Cup Finals on Sunday . . . HUP !!
INVENTORY TIME . . . yeh . . . I did a bit of research on denim in the “fashion” world last evening . . . not a lot of creativity, mostly skinny stuff, short skirts and “safe” jackets, etc. . . . nothing that got me too excited . . . just the usual faded, worn or “distressed” everyday crap.
Saw some interesting use of lasers to “age” and add designs to denim. . . . uh huh . . . uhm . . . yeh . . .
. . . no lasers here, just a metal straight edge and a sharp rotary cutter . . .
Rammstein sonne . . . the best musik for drudgery work . . . lots of ideas in tha mix . . .

Well . . . uh . . . there’s a lot of fabric that needs to be pressed flat . . . stitched panels that can be made into lap blankets . . . pieces for “haori” jacket sleeves . . . finished panels for “h”-jacket backs AND so many denim pieces that I will probably spend a month pinning pieces together and stitching all of them into larger panels . . . uh . . .
. . . after two hours got stuff pretty much sorted . . . found more intact pants and had a conference with my daughter about what to do with some of the patchwork pieces . . .
Before closing “shop” for the day, I did lay-out the pieces for the front of a “haori” style jacket , , , the back panel is already finished . . . the sleeves will be finished tomorrow.
Two panels for the FRONT not the “sleeves” as I posted earlier . . . will add a bit more fabric for more length . . .
Panel #1 . . .
And panel #2 . . .
A little of Robert Motherwell in the composition, neh? . . . the “Spanish Elegy” series . . .
