Convalescing, Craft Style

Hello everybuggy!  I’ve just started this site to keep y’all up to date on the comings and goings of Little Eye Designs.  We (Kate and I) just finished up PICNIC Music and Arts Festival and as my reward I’m taking the month of September to recline, clean up and regroup.  The ultimate goal is to learn some new skills, see if anything sticks and take pictures all the while.

So far, we’ve learned how to roast coffee and I’ve started pouring soy candles in to mismatched tea cups and shot glasses.  Pretty good!  Next up:  basket weaving, baking and t-shirt quilts.

In the meantime, why don’t you let your mind be blown by what I saw today?

Go Here and Drool

There are about a hundred things on this website I wish a) were still made today b) were semi-normal to wear in public.  Not that I would let that stop me.  The jacket shown is by a designer, Fortuny, whose estate’s website is www.fortuny.com and totally Italian and totally inspiring.  In addition to making beautiful velvety clothes he was a renaissance man, photographer, and even made his own photographic paper.  My kind of guy.
