man, we have gone through a LOT of tissues this week. mae has finally turned a corner (i hope) today after getting slightly better and then back to bad with her fever/head cold. i, however, seem to be just at the beginning, sore throat for a couple of days and then yesterday it came on as a fully fledged cold. codral and eucalyptus tissues are keeping me upright but words are few and far between. i owe people emails, bear with me kind people, hopefully tomorrow i can face sitting in front of the computer for a longer time.
and for a pic today, i thought i'd finally show what i've been working on slowing for over a week now. little fabric blocks that i'm calling "colour blocks". six different fabrics in common colour, supported with a sturdy interfacing and stuffed with wool fleece, these have been slightly addictive to make. i think they would be fun for babies to clutch and throw and a cute way for toddlers to learn their colours and pick out the different things shown on each side. these will be available at the markets i am doing in november and then online december 1. i think mae will be getting a set for christmas : )
these have some new little tags that i made using inkjet tshirt transfers and cotton tape and feature a new little name i will be using on some of my products. oohgeedee stands for one girl designwrks in theory but i really just like how it sounds and looks.
