Lazy Girl Try Outs & Projects

Lately I have been playing the part of Lazy Girl, one in which with very little practice I can be very good at :) Ahhh but then I remind myself that I have no schedule to keep, no deadlines looming, no threats of professional ruin. Nope nothing, so I figure if I feel like being lazy, lazy I'll be :) (so there!!) 

I do have one er two huh... maybe three projects started, and that's not counting The Room, in different stages. Since I hate that's with a capital H cutting out patterns I spent Monday cutting out 2tees,3skirts,2jumper/aprons. Yeah pretty much my spring summer clothes. I also have been playing around with a bit of resin/wire&paper. Of course there is always the call of rust. Renate sent me some nicely aged pocket watch cases in her gift box of German flea market treasures. I've been playing around with both the rust and verdigris patinas on it. Here it is with the rust

I did finish another hmmmm what to call it???? Top sounds good, I had a piece of awesome stretch lace I threw in with a couple of tea bags to age a bit. Then I cut out the little shrug pattern I made.

 I took the bottom half of a jumper and used it as the bottom for the lace top. Cut it so it's above my knees so I can wear it with my jeans or a long skirt and not look to eccentric. I edged the top and ran through the eyelet lace, strips of a cotton flower print material I tore into ribbons.

It actually turned out quite cute. And I have already worn it more then I ever did the jumper :)

Okay that's about all I've gotten accomplished. I think it's about time for this Lazy Girl to go do a bit more rehearsing :) Don't forget today is a perfect day to make art no matter where in the world you
are  p;)

Lazy girl, you are making me tired with all of your activity. That top is great. I do love your rusty things. I spy some little wrapped up wire pieces in there. Ready for resin?

Well, haven't you been the productive one!

I wish I could say the same. Alas, it's not true. I've been a groundslug.

LOVE the top photo - they look SOOOOOO comfortable. I think I'll go curl up and try to imitate them right now.

Your haute couture looks ready for walks along the seawall or down along the beach! I really like the material threaded thru like ribbons.
