I’d like to say I’ve been busy. But unless being busy being lazy counts… As an apology for being away so long, few words many pictures.
Lizzie Kate Flip-Its complete through June. One day I’ll get a good picture of this. Threads as charted, fabric Bo Peep Pink lugana.
Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow, over 1 with NPI on 40ct. Tape measure so you can see just how small this works up.
Snow Queen’s Slipper. Stitched as charted, 2010 taken from Black Velvet sampler.
Matching scissor sheath. The scissors are from Dinky Dyes. There is a matching fob, I have it stitched, but still have to do the finishing. I do have a step by step photo tutorial on my Facebook account, message me if you need help in finishing. (note, you will need to buy the kit! my tutorial will only help you if you own the design)
Box I made for the Chatelaine smalls exchange. The top is from Medieval Town Mandala, the box itself is made from yellow silk dupioni (which is a match for the yellow silk in the roses, it didn’t photograph well). Making Hand Sewn Boxes is where I found the directions for box making.
And this was what I received in exchange! It’s so much prettier in person. Stitched on Opal fabric for extra sparkle. Japanese Box is one of my favorite Chatelaine designs so this made me extra happy.
I’ve also been doing some reading (as always). My current favorite series is Downside Ghosts, the series starts with Unholy Ghosts and book 3 City of Ghosts is releasing on Tuesday. If you like Urban Fantasy at all do yourself a favor and go buy these.
I have more photos (somewhere… need to sort things) and I have finished Mom’s quilt. I’m hoping to be back more often, but don’t count on it until school starts. And since we’re starting to get close… Yes, there will be a Halloween giveaway this year. So don’t quit on me when I don’t have much to show for the next 2 or 3 months. 😉
