cutting room trainee

I have a workshop trainee that has been thrown out and been refused entry many a time...
Now that he is 6 months old he has matured enough to be present even when some serious frock making takes place! But something about entering my sacred creative space makes him into a complete loonie! There must be a sense of play present as all the kitten behaviour of running, climbing, jumping and playing with EVERYTHING comes out...
A good cutting weight he does NOT make!
 Now that's better!
 And the silk is cut!


  1. can't wait to see the finished dress - hopefully the trainee will have become involved in some other pursuits when it comes time to sew it up!

  2. Me too. I dyed some silk thread this evening (wound up around a banksia rose twig, many thanks!) that just happens to be the right shade for sewing and got another hew on the simmer. Should all be dry for tomorrow for stitching!


Your thoughts are most welcome.
