#20 and #21 and the biorhythm begins to shift

#20 - an ikea jack, wherein i took a cheap silk ikea pillow cushion and embroidered felt flowers onto it.


#21 - wherein we (being sabin and myself) constructed paper robots and hung them on the ceiling:


and then, to amuse myself, i printed in A4 a picture taken on the beach at the north sea back in january and pretended to take my merfish to the beach to meet the rock i picked up near the great pyramid in 2000. i think they liked each other quite a bit.


and then i doodled a few things in my inspiration book, read an interesting article about sustainable cities,  chatted on the phone to the most creative, funniest person i know,


played around a bit with embroidery thread and tactile felt in my favorite colors:


and then inspiration struck. and not only did it strike, i acted on it:


the biorhythm must be coming into alignment between the intellectual and the physical so that my thoughts can now have accompanying actions. phew. either that or it's because the sun is shining and there's a whiff of spring in the air. whatever it is, i'm not fighting it.

But WE didn't talk on the phone?! I'm confused, who else do you know that's brilliant and funny?

Okay, so I'm jealous.

Actually, I might be more jealous of Sabin because you guys are hanging out and making such cool, colorful stuff. I love the felt. And all of those pens!
