Getting Stitchy


These embroidery frames came all the way from Australia this week!  Can’t wait to work on mini-embroidery. I have so many ideas and sketches and am excited about making cute jewelry!


Now I have another easy and portable project to work on during my commute to and from work. While I waited patiently for the frames to arrive I continued to work on Ian and he now has the semblance of a nose!


This weekend is going to be spent on zines and the rest of Ian’s nose since we’re supposed to get another 3-10 inches on Saturday and zine fest is now only 2 weeks away.

Can’t wait!

Mini Embroidery Hoops made by The Creative Muster. Available on Etsy!

I’ve been interested in making embroidered necklace pendants for quite some time now, but hadn’t put much time or thought into it until I came across The Creative Muster Etsy shop, which sells small embroidery hoop frames made from bamboo that can either be hung on a wall or turned into jewelry.

Fortunately, they’re not very expensive, so I was able to buy a few different styles. Unfortunately, they’re made in Canberra, Australia, so it’s probably going to be a few weeks before I get my hands on them.

Oh, well, in the meantime I can work on cute embroidery designs, so I can get to work as soon as they arrive!
