The Otoe Missouria Tribe had their yearly encampment (powwow) and this is the first year I didn't go at all. I was swamped with orders, but also recovering from a long period of headache caused by heat and general stress. Stress as in "Finishing the studio". I had arranged a big part of my yarns in one of the shelves when we realized that the wood was still releasing chemical fumes, so all work had been done in vein and the yarn went back into my sealed totes. As we learned on google a green way to get rid of these residues is:
bowls of vinegar
rub shelves with baby oil
Now we are waiting:)...1 whole week should do the trick.
Highlight of last weekend:
Smokey Robinson concert, with us in the 2nd front rows and centered. A great concert and I attempted a little video with my cheap camera.

This shrug consists mainly of recycled yarns: cotton blend, sari silk, banana plant fiber.
Patchwork hippie dread tam, similar to shrug, but not matchy-matchy
More tam hats from the Bohemian streetwear collection:

The mannequins had to get dressed quickly...pardon the style, or lack of such:)
North East corner...make shift sitting area and more boxes
door from the back yard, on the left is the bathroom which still needs to be finished with sink and stool, salvaged old sewing table under the cooling/heating unit
I tried to capture the big space in the middle of the room where the work tables will go...
I do love this industrial fan and 3 rows of lighting will brighten the room on even the darkest days.
The commute: from patio along our little garden to work:)
More transition: from short blond back to long haired brunette, I am hanging in there and just let the locks grow:)

...so much going on, so little time to blog about it.
So I will leave it at sharing new additions to the Fall/Winter 2011 hat collection;
handknit crazy fair isle tams
More shell stitching for the BoHo tams
urban ribbed tam
Once Sid and I will be moved into our new work space I will have so much more time and room to create. I am already looking forward to fall, who wouldn't in 100F plus every day:)
