Hi there sweeties, it’s Wednesday so you were probably waiting for me to post my ‘deskphoto’… and here it is. I must say that I took this photo earlier this week; it’s my son’s jeans. He got this second hand jeans from a friend but there is a large wear spot on a rather unusual place. You would expect these spots on the buttocks but this wear (almost a hole) is exactly in the middle. My son asked me to repair it but every repair you make there would draw attention so I (we) decided to alter this jeans with several patches like I altered his jacket.
I purchased Japanese patches and some extra Sashiko thread in the English online shop that Jan (Lunch Lady Jan) recommended and it came in last week. Aren’t those patterns and colours lovely?
I chose patches in blues to go on the jeans and stitched with the sewing machine. Here’s how that looks…
(I notice a colour difference in the photos, I think the first ‘blue-er’ one is the most accurate)
I started the Sashiko embroidery (you can see it on the pocket.) I will use the blue thread, and maybe the black, to keep it decent and not bring too much attention to my son’s buttocks 😉
After I drew ‘eyes’ last week (thanks for all the sweet comments!) I kept on drawing… I’m went back to the EDM list (“Every Day Matters”) and picked up the challenge where I left off…
EDM #8 – Draw your watch or other piece of jewelry
I got the perspective of the watch all wrong ( it should have been more of an oval) but hey it’s a good exercise. I try to keep it up with at least one drawing every week.
Besides all the ‘projects’ I still create weekly art journal spread in my Chronicles journal and here’s two spreads I hadn’t published yet (click on the photos to enlarge.)
The Chronicles of Marit 2018 – Week 35
In week 35 I didn’t feel like working out my notes so I glued a pocket on the page to store the notes. The image on the postcard was created by a fellow artist Gerdi Zwaan. She is a sculptor who lives in my neighbourhood, I visited her in her studio.
The Chronicles of Marit 2018 – Week 36
… and the Zetti-images keep showing up on my art journal pages.
Thanks for your visit to my blog today, I hope to pay all deskers that leave a comment a visit back later this week.
