Stockpiling Spectrums

stockpile

There's a piling up of all manner of colorful goods as though a winter with no end were imminent and all that will pass the time is drawing and sewing in front of a log burning fire. Not at all for real, but sounds quite nice. I do think that I'm squirreling away supplies as a promise to myself, evidenced in my last post. (Oh, and I need to point out that the colored pencils did not produce the drawings laying next to them in the photos. Those are some marker sketches from the summer....the pencils were just lying there in jealousy, waiting for their chance.)

columns

A long since sad willow finally laid itself down in our yard after the last storm. We felt a cremation was in order. We offered condolences by snapping, cutting, breaking and piling every last bit of it into orderly piles categorized by size. The kids flipped out when Leo carried a small/medium stick in his mouth and then actually dropped it in the small/medium pile. He's a genius they laughed. Then they got their wish of campfire hotdogs and I got poison ivy. The hot dogs were so much better.

The littlest girl staying home today, who has a bit of a cough and runny nose, was crazy pleased to pile up these new little spectrums atop our woodpile. She said it would make a beautiful rainbow campfire.

Oh but the thread, yes. While I would recommend only cotton thread for your machine and hand quilting, have you guys tried out the new & improved Coats thread? I am in love and went a bit crazy on colors, but it is hard to have too much, no? The quality is greatly improved, perfect for garment sewing (especially if you work with more than just cotton fabric) and I am a sucker for the fancy new wind-up at the top of the spool . Eleni fancies playing a sort of Jenga with them more than sewing with them, but we'll work with that.

Leo the genius dog sat guarding the small/medium pile the whole time we took pictures. Come to think of it, looking at these pictures I think he was waiting for his fetch command. Okay, now I feel bad. One or two throws won't put me too far behind.

enjoy your weekend friends! xo,Anna

  1. You're always good for a jolt of color! :) Love the thread. And the sweet pup.

    Btw, the new "caramel" flavored Brachs Candy Corn? S'ok. On par with the chocolate kind. Not as good as the classic, but nummy in a pinch! Just thought you might like a review.

  6. Thanks for the tip on the new and improved Coats thread. I hadn't noticed that yet. Your thread gathering reminds me of the squirrels out and about now with nuts in their mouths, stockpiling for winter. Great colors!

  14. How inspiring! You are making me want to pull out my sewing machine at almost 9 o'clock PM ... I've been drumming up an idea for a felt FALL pillow ... Hummmmm. I love that you work with so many different art mediums. I mainly work with acrylics and colored pencils, but have been known to sew and stitch a bit, too. BTW, what brand of pencils do you work with? I've always worked with Prisma, but have been having trouble with the lead breaking within the pencil as of late... any suggestions?

    And, just a side note ... Leo is a beauty!

  15. I think you are smart to stockpile supplies...we had the same tree knocking wind storm come through, and I have a feeling winter will be a wild one. Snowed in with some necessary supplies sounds like a great plan!

    Sweet pup:)

  16. You probably already know just how happy this particluar post made me! A rainbow of thread, all arranged in roygbiv order. Warms my heart. And yes, I'm enjoying the new C&C too. I'm even more excited about my rapidly multiplying cones of Maxi-Lock for the serger. That's some good stuff right there. Except they take up WAY too much space. :)

    Anna, what beautiful photos of something so simple! I too have been dreaming of a long, cozy winter with stichery and sketch pad and journal. I've been squirrelling away a rainbow of embroidery floss just in case. . .well, maybe not a whole winter, but at least a weekend or two. or three :)

  19. Aw, Leo is a very handsome man, isn't he? His eyes look like he's saying, "Just one stick. Just one, it'll be fun! Pleeeeeeeease?"

    The thread is beautiful. I've been inspired to do some sewing, so I may have to make a run to the fabric store.

  29. Dear Anna, I just have to tell you that your taste in color and creative multi-faceted work are both a delight and solace for my eyes. I have made your blog one of my home pages on my browser, and so it is one of the first things I get to see when I fire up my computer. What inspiration to fuel me through the day!
