August Projects

It's been a busy couple of weeks since the last post but rest assured it has been frantic on the making front. I discovered a new passion, embroidery. I began by making it up and then watched a useful video on Etsy labs that showed four stitches and I was up and running.

Here are a few samples, I'm so excited to incorporate the technique into new plushies.

This was my first attempt sans instructions.

Owl Tea Towel

Sun and Cloud

Rain cloud with rainbow on back
In addition I've been making a selection of cloud pillows as well as a sun but it looks more like an egg when not placed near a cloud. I embroidered a rainbow on the back of the rain cloud but forgot to take a picture. That's it for now, short and sweet.


  1. Hello, discovered you in the list of vendors at Renegade Craft Fair London (sadly I can't be there) & I love your work!

    I am just about to start trying some embroidery myself. I LOVE your embroidered owl (and the tea-t'owl too!)

  2. Thank you. Have fun with your embroidery projects, perfect for chilly nights in. In a newer post I blogged about a book I found called Needlework by Reader's Digest if you can get your hands on a copy you will have all the stitch instructions you need.
