Morning Surprise!

I’ve been putting more and more photos up on Flickr recently and finding some great design ideas at the same time. This morning I was cruising through the people who have favorited one or more of my embroidery photos when I discovered this little beauty tucked away in Chickenfoot’s “favorites”! Oh this makes me so happy!

Marilynkb bought one of my Manimals patterns and here I am, actually getting to see how it turned out! I never imagined how thrilling it would be to stumble on someone else’s interpretation of a pattern I’ve made. I think they turned out so well. Oh it’s a good day!

Still Busy

I may be home for the holidays but I’m still doing some things. I’ve been churning out some embroidery patterns which has been fun, but also means I spend more time on the computer than usual, trying to retrace all of my scribbly little hand drawn patterns. Having these patterns means I can have things in the shop even when I’m away from homebase, like I am now.

These three guys make up the new Octopiddle embroidery pattern up in the shop only a matter of minutes ago!

And then there’s Bea the Bunny who joined the shop as a pattern yesterday. I really like this one…

And I’ve been making some little pocket bunnies. They’re about three inches tall from their bases to the tops of their round little heads and quite fun to make. They’re stuffed with wool and have some rice in their bases to give them a little bit of heft. I love stuffing the things I make with wool instead of polyfil. The wool compacts nicer and gives everything a more solid, satisfying feel. I’d love to get my hands on some lavender or other herbs to put in the next batch.

New Threads

I’ve been doing some small crafty things. I knit Joe a hat for Christmas and, since I couldn’t wait until that crazy holiday to give it to him I also decided to write a pattern for it and have him pose for some pictures. So, the pattern is in the etsy shop (check it out!) and the hat has been on his head ever since…

I also started a new series of tins. I’ve run out of the actual tins until after Christmas, but I’m busy making the embroideries that will go on them when they reach my sweat, busy little fingers.foxy62

Stay tuned for these guys in the shop after the holidays.
