Mike. I back stitch a couple of ti=mes , and I always remove the pins. I've broken too many needles and If youre on your last needle its can put a stop to your sewing project.
MUd , I'm just doing one or 2 lamp shade desings, there will be a n entire line of artist designed lamps availabe from Gene McDomald.
If my life wasnt so crazy busy now I would have been done with mine long ago. I cant wait to see it completed , illuminated,, and possibly hanging over someones dining room table.

That's the one I LOVE!!! And it's not even done yet!

The panoramic scope of it is incredible... would make a great print! (hint hint...)

Beautiful lamps and cloth. I think your thread needs Mike the MadDogModel wearing your cannibal cloth design. Wendy

finally finished this shirt and its ready to ship. museum exhibit chaos and cold just about killed me and put me a few weeks behind in my projects. Grrr!





stitching on the pocket



the new label is now placed inside the front towards the bottom


the first shirt to get the new coconut buttons imported from Thailand


packaged and ready to ship



starting on the next shirt, this one is for the winner of the free shirt drawing last month. the winner was from Friends of Atomic Ranch over on Fb and he has since dissapeared. WTF! I
m making the shirt anyway, and if it comes back its up for grabs.

__
ding, its done_______________

I have all current sewing orders off my desk and am about to start on a couple of album cover pieces, as that is the theme for both Hukilau and Oasis art shows this yr.
BUT before I do that I'm going to make myself finish this shirt that been hanging around for a couple of months. Its the first one of my new 70's slim fit pattern with the slightly pointy collar. I'm fighting EVERY urge not to put an ornange zipper on this, and some sissy pockets. The zipper idea didn't occur to me until after I had alread sewn the front to accomodate buttons. So , I can't really do it even though I'm dying to. This one will just be regulation conservative style, but the next one is SO getting a contrasting zipper.
