Over the last 6 months or so I've had some custom orders on Etsy. I had a request for a Iron man inspired jellyfish complete with an apple. (heaven knows why) I also had someone request a purple jellyfish with orange eyes. Which turned out super adorable.
Below is a knightly dinosaur complete with sword ready to fight deadly foes.
Kudos to the girl who asked for the dino, tons of creative idea points go to her.
A lavender top hat wearing octopus was requested as well, cause why not?
I finished this cross stitch last December but (cough) never posted it. These are lyrics from one of my favorite worship songs. As you can see I made a few (maybe a lot ) of mistakes in this piece. In my defense it was my first large cross stitch project. Now to find a frame to fit it.
I saw this quilt block on pinterest awhile ago and knew right away I wanted to make a quilt with this design. I made this particular quilt for a friends birthday, but I am determined to make another one for myself. It just came out so pretty!
The back was made up from scraps and a couple blocks I made from leftover solids. I am particularly fond of the pixel-ish block on the left.
This is one of those "I feel suddenly inspired to finish off some old projects!" These hexagon pieces have been lying in my workbasket longer than I'd like to admit. Now they are quilted, binded and ready to be used.
This one is using smaller hexagons, which makes it more time consuming, but I think the end result is lovely. This one is definitely staying with me.
I used a mixture of vintage scraps and quilting fabric leftovers for the hexagons and binding.
If you have ever been to a library book sale I'm sure you'll be able to relate to the drawing above.
Sulky boy is sulky. The motif is inspired by Mucha. Thank goodness I don't have to say that out loud. I was at a con once and commented that a drawing looked Mucha inspired. Feeling very proud of myself for being able to remember an artist and recognize their style, she then replied that yes it was and "It's pronounced MucHA" I don't reference artists anymore.
It wasn't too long after I posted my first sun plushie on Etsy, that I got a request for two suns. The woman ordering them asked if one of the suns could be more girly and the other more boyish, as she was purchasing them for her son and daughter.
The plethora of baby showers happening in my church sparked a need for a new baby item. My mom knit a lovely baby sweater and asked if I could make a mushroom rattle to go with it. The rattle was well received at the shower and lo, requests for baby rattles are coming in. I'll soon have a listing for the rattle in my shop available in four colors, so stay posted.
