I've had a bit of time to do some sewing over the last week. I managed to get a curtain made to hide the recycling boxes in my kitchen. Classic Movie Monsters :)

And I embroidered a set of nakpins with a Shakespeare quote in the shape of a skull, which are now listed on the Etsy shop.

I've been on holiday from work for a week. I've not got as much done as I would have liked. I have an awesome new machine, a cupboard full of fabric and loads of embroidery designs and I haven't a clue what to make. I have listed a few new things on the etsy shop and relisted some expired things. I really need to advertise. This machine needs to start earning it's keep.

This is one of the things I managed to get done.

A New Baby

I've not posted for a while because I've not had much chance to do any sewing, other than a bit of work on a doll commission. I sold my Janome 11000 last week and have brought home a Janome 15000! #excited.

Today was my first day off since then and I've finally sewn something! Just a quick headband but I want to start with something simple while I figure out this beast. When I was packing up the 11000 I had a flick through the instruction book and had a few "I didn't know it did that!" moments. So I plan to know this baby inside out. I love it already!

First Post Of The Year

How can we be half way through February already?

I've been busy getting ready for doing a talk at a local Rural with my dolls. I did it on Wednesday and I was way more nervious this time than the first time I did it a few years ago. Everyone seemed interested and loved the dolls though. I managed to get a few quick snaps this time.


I made most of the clothes that the big Ball Jointed dolls are wearing and all the ones that are out on the table. ( I didn't make anything the blue haired one is wearing, the leapord coat or t-shirt the wine haired one has on, or any of the jeans, shoes or wigs, but I made the rest)
Now that this is over I should hopefully have a bit more time for sewing again, although having said that, the SECC Creative Stitches show is less than a month away, so we have to prep for that.
