Bucket Bags & Embroidery

on May 13, 2009

leaf-stencil-redI’m tired now, I went out today to buy yet more fabric, I think I have everything now… except transfer paper, I can’t find any anywhere, I may have to order it online or get someone in the UK to fedex me some. I need it bad, it will really make life so much easier, especially with my embroidery.

I bought some 100% white stripe on white linen the other day too. I just had to have it, it was so nice. I could picture my embroidery stitches covering it. I was reading some Aesop’s Fables and some Hans Christian Anderson stories online the other day, I found some really beautiful quotes and expressions in them, so I took some of them and filed them away, I hope to use them in my embroidered wall art.

I would really like to hurry up and get my Etsy shop stocked already! But I’m still faffing around trying to sort out the shipping costs for the items for sale. Also, in an effort to get organized I am going to be making some bucket bags tomorrow, I have some canvas and I bought some fine weave green burlap (and some loose weave natural burlap, that scares me!), I’ll post some pictures… if they turn out ok! 🙂

Mmm, what else? Ah, yes. If you want to know what’s going on in my doll making world, you can visit my doll making blog. And go visit my Flickr pictures too, if you have time.

Chat soon, bye!
