oooohhh - something shiny!

oooohhh - something shiny!

I have so many things on the go and in various stages of completion (don’t we all?) but I still have those  tempting “ooh-look- something-shiny-and-new-that-I-just-have-to-start-today” moments!

My latest irresistible must-have project has gotten a bit out of hand! Before Christmas I gave in to my obsession with Sue Spargo‘s amazing folksy, super embellished felted wool embroidery art.  It really is art.  And, even when you follow her instructions and colours, it is still so personally your own work. It is amazing.  Naturally I had to get the threads, wool felt, a few kits and books, a few other different bits and pieces  for the shop.  This is what I made over my Christmas break…

 

Because i enjoyed stitching these new samples for the shop, (that’s tight; I made them for the shop!) I have started my own bucket list of Sue’s ideas.  Chicks Play - I just love these chickens- and the Toned Down Sampler are fabulous.  I dream about them - seriously!  Needless to say I have ordered the extra threads and a few more kits to justify my obsessive need to stitch these items…

 

Now, please feel free to challenge me on my progress with these projects.  There are a few (ok; so there are many!) other things that I have to make time to complete.  I have started making deals with myself.  You know the sort of thing - do this one job for work and then you can embroider 1 length of thread to a chicken.  That 1 length of thread turns into several lengths (I was on a roll!  The work was looking great!) and then there is no time left to do the work that makes a business run smoothly.  I know that you know what I mean here...

Happy Easter peeps!
