The Very and Very Peri

I had the pleasure of creating new CD art for The Very, a very fun indie band I’m a fan of and friends with. Was challenged with creating collages from video grabs and various sources. Very happy about how it turned out and the songs are great. Released in March.

Check out their Bandcamp page.
Listen to the songs, and get a copy of the CD of The Universe of You from Harriet Records.

Periwinkle Designs by Eleanor Ramsay

Very Peri is also the name of a shade of Periwinkle that Pantone, the ink/color matching behemoth, has declared the Color of the Year 2022. Since many stylists pay attention to these trends, expect to see a lot of periwinkle and teal or bright green patterns on clothing and homegoods (and sale racks later this fall). Spoonflower always encourages designers to create patterns celebrating the color of the year. I’ve got a collection of designs available in yardage and a variety of homegoods

New Calendar Designs

Since it’s that time of year, I should post about my tea towel calendars. Every year for the past 7 years, I have created a new tea towel calendar. Usually printed on canvas, these kinds of calendars have been collected for at least 100 years by home cooks. They were popular kitchen decorations that, after the calendar year was over, would be replaced by the next new year and added to the pile of tea and dish towels that kept a kitchen tidy. They are still popular, especially for drying dishes and keeping bread warm.

Visit my Tea Towel Calendars And Time Collection at Spoonflower to buy as pre-made tea towels or buy yardage and sew some yourself. .

Making Masks

50 two-sided masks ready for the Boston Area Mask Initiative. I’ve been using leftover T-shirt jersey for ties. Haven’t done these ones because I’m not sure what they want. I’ll have more of these soon, for friends and family. This was a challenge (because I’m not really an experienced sewist) and the process was an extension of my Lenten “fast.” Every design is unique and one of my original fabric proofs. May the recipients stay well.
