Firstly,I must apologise for not posting here for a little while.I wish I could regale you with a tale of adventure and amazement but simply I have been too busy.Busy fixing broken appliances,doing errands,finishing commissions,entertaining a little restless angel and working on a new website(that last bit is a little bit exciting)
I hope the website will be ready very soon and it has been quite pain free so far. I'm using Create which seems to be quite good value and a bit more editable than others I have tried.Here are some screenshots of my progress so far but it does need a lot more work.To start with it really is more like a gallery of my makes and a way of tying the blog,facebook,etc together but I hope to have a shop on the website eventually(the shop tab will direct you to the Folksy shop at first)Due to most of my makes being one of a kind it can be difficult to choose where to sell what.That's the reason I haven't stocked the Etsy shop currently. I'd love to hear what you look for in a website or if you have any pet hates about sites?
Technology aside,I just finished another Summer Wanderings embroidery and this time she is a flower loving flame haired lass.She is now available to purchase in my Folksy nook.
I decided to not appliqué the dress this time and test my filling in skills.I used back,split,seed and lazy daisy stitches to pretty her dress.The end result reminds me of pointillism(which I remember being obsessed with when I was fifteen - not your average teenage obsession really)
I also just wanted to say a big hello and thank you to my new followers and to my 'old' ones for popping in and listening to my musings.My next post will be very soon hopefully and the first of my book reviews.I adored reading all your reading recommendations on my last giveaway and always pore over other people's reviews so thought I'd start a regular book post myself.There won't be a theme;just inspiring books that I have discovered recently and also well loved reads.Until then,
