More Odds and Ends

I am still trying to get back into the regular home and studio routine, so I don’t really have much to show for work this week. Instead, here is another collection of odds and ends.

One of the things I made sure to include while in Toronto was a visit to ARTiculations, one of my favourite art supply stores. I purchased some more brass items made by the company that produces the ruler/stencil that I purchased last year.

I have a project in mind for the label plates, but nothing specific in mind (yet) for the number clips. Although the latter are designed to be removable, if I want them attached permanently, I should be able to stitch them in place at the narrow neck at the top of the tongue.

When I got home a friend gave me another metal thing: a corner cutting guide to add to my collection of tools.

It should come in handy for cutting corners.

I have started back to work writing wishes and folding stars. The gallon jar with the stars I have folded since getting back doesn’t look that impressive, so here are the boxes in my studio. The second box already has four gallons of stars in it.

I have been (mostly) folding the largest size of stars. To maintain a random mix of sizes, I dump the latest full gallon into the first box. I mix thoroughly, then move a gallon of stars into the second box. This system seems to be working so far.
