Fun with Interlock Scraps

So I have this overflowing tote of interlock wool scraps. I had just run out of the one color of wool I was using and didn't have enough to create a waistband for a pair of pants last week. I have had this idea for about a year and just never DID it. So, I sat down and did it finally and I really like how it turned out and it was fun to do. So, introducing the patchwork yoga style pants.

Time to Spice Up the Blog :)

I felt a little dirty taking this pic and even a little dirtier posting it here (hi mom) but it is really pretty incredible. If I had time, I would love to do some photography stuff with a "real" camera. This is a pair of praying mantiss (or however you make praying matis plural... is it manti?) I nearly stepped on them this morning going into my studio and they were not real happy. They moved (as a team LOL) to the side of the building where they decided to camp out all day. These bugs are quite scary looking and don't like humans at ALL but are really cool. I am sure they got tired of me looking at them. They actually had their heads turned towards the camera fo the pic and I would swear she looks like she is smiling if you have a bigger version of the pic. I always heard rumors that the female eats the male, but as of the end of the day, his head was still intact :)

On other life notes, I always procrastinate every year when I complete my continuing education hours required by the state for my insurance license. In my former life I worked in insurance and I have a license for life/health and property/casualty. I can't bare to let my license expire so I wait until the last day to get everything done. Talk about a load off my shoulders!!!!

So what did our moms of girls pick this week?

Last week we offered 3 custom slots in our hand dyed interlock. We dyed the fabric bubblegum pink and allowed the moms to have free reign to design a pair of yoga style pants or footies. I think they turned out fabulous! I had a great time working one on one with each mom and look forward to doing it again very soon.
