I thought I'd share a few of shots of some newly finished work. It's just 3 weeks till the spring Urban Barn Market. I've got a lot of sewing still to do.
I have been busy restocking my crossover booties and spent a lot of hours sewing at the machine. This afternoon I finished up a batch of 42 new pairs in time for spring markets.
To celebrate the end of a mass production cycle, I spent a lovely hour digging through my felt and floss planing out more hand embroidered booties. I love making these. Each pair is a doodle if you will of stitches. I always try to keep a pair stashed in my bag for filling the time while waiting for a lesson to end or while my girls are busy playing in the park.
Redbuds are out in full force, each day the world is greener, and new growth is pooping out everywhere.
I've been busy sewing and restocking my etsy shop and taking more items to the local shops that carry my work. I always am over ambitious with time it takes to make work and take care of my family. The result being that I never quite finish as much as I hope.
I have many plans for new designs and new techniques to add to my work. Fortunately, I've had some custom orders in the last few months that have allowed me to revisit some of my favorites.
Here are a few shots from a custom pair of booties and matching onesie.
So many great things have been happening. Last week, I took several items down to the Cotton Museum. This coming Saturday, I'll be joining a terrific group of local makers for the first Crosstown Seasonal Market housed at the Midtown Crossing Grill. And today...
I dropped off a group of work at diane's art, gift, home!
It's a wonderful shop and gallery in midtown a Memphis. The store is filled with assortment of lovely items for everyone.
You can now locally by my embroidered booties, the dragon jacket, and many more items. In a few weeks time there will also be hobbie horses and hobbie rabbits. Please be sure to stop by and see all the things Diane's has to offer.
2016 is off to a wonderful start indeed!
