More time!

Hello!

Been super busy this month, and as such, not much time for blogging. It’s amazing how working evening shifts plus trying to maintain some kind of social life can really sap away the time, so since i like to use my free shop work days for making (well, frantically stitching!) and in the evenings im either working my other job or seeing lovely mateys or family, its difficult to find time for computer based stuff such as the blog! I’m seriously looking forward to April when I’ll have a lot more time on my hands!

Ive been working on a load more earrings for the shop and im slowly going through the process of photographing them and getting them ready to list:

Ive also been working on pieces for an exhibition over at the lovely Penarth Pavillion, which will be going ahead in May:

I’m really enjoying working with fabric paint so i think ill be doing more of that in the future. Ive taken loads of pictures round Penarth too which has turned into a mini project itself, I’ll probably post them all onto the facebook page eventually.

I’ve started making earrings from fabric covered buttons, this is the first batch listed in the shop! I’m really enjoying the process and I’m planning on more embroidered ones, but making them from all my offcuts is super fun too 🙂DSCF5090

Big and Small

Hello, I’m still here! Have had a very productive couple of months making lots of new work as well as working plenty of overtime at the library. That whole abstract pattern design phase I was going through the last time I posted seems to have subsided, and I appear to be rekindling my love of maps…

I’m contrasting that with some very small and quick to make products that I’ve never tried before, button earrings! I’m pretty pleased with how theyre coming out so far, and it makes excellent use of all those spare little bits of fabric that are too small to use for anything else 🙂

Last week I invested in a beautiful red daylight LED lamp for my desk, do any other stitchers have one of these? If not, GET ONE, it is the best £20 I have spent in a long time!  Allegedly the LED bulbs are meant to last 20 years as well, which is pretty amazing if its true….
