cookie fonts

Working some cookies into this busy week.  These are progress photos (with really bad lighting and a dead battery in my speed light) of the cookies with the first few colors applied.  There are four logos in all going on the cookies in various configurations.  And then all the cookies will get a nice white border, so ignore the unfinished look at the moment.  That’s a serious amount of writing though – very tedious, but kind of fun for us weird types that like tedious work.   Looking forward to the Ignite logo to shake things up a bit.


I’ve been admiring fabrics lately – there are just so many great ones out there, and the addition of a new fabric store in town doesn’t hurt.

Of course, my admiration of fabrics just makes me lament the fact that a.  I don’t have time to teach myself to sew (it’s been a few decades since I made clothes, and even then it was just your basic skirts and shirts) and b.  fabric can be expensive (especially if it just sits there, doing nothing).

But still, I do love the idea of one day finding the time (and space) to sew, and I really love the idea of putting curtains in F’s room, because even the hanging bed sheets make me happy in there.

So I’ll link to those fabrics I posted a few days ago, if you’re so inclined. If you are just looking for a good one-stop shop for fabric browsing online, I like Alewives site. They have a nice selection, but it’s still just the tip of the iceberg.
