how to live alone well – installment 5

7) get crafty 

Save every piece of paper – tickets, receipts, brochures – browse through buttons, collect yarn, sit in the sewing room with Edit …

… though, of course, sewing with Edit is not being alone.  When Edit goes home, I bring my work to my own room.  Below is the result of a sampler-esque embroidery project for my friend Kathleen:

I also gave a makeover to a sweater I received.  The “before” picture, reflecting the color of the walls, looks more interesting than it looked in real life.  The appliqués were plastic and flimsy and shiny and not at all my cup of tea.  So I cut them all off and scoured Edit’s sewing room for buttons.

Before                                                                    After


Saving interesting things that come across your path can also provide endless entertainment.  Find yourself with an old piece of stationary, a cork, a small wooden shingle and some matches?  Behold the result.
