Since December 1st, I haven't been doing much on the jewelry-making front and I'm totally fine with that. I wanted to take a break from it as I felt like I have exhausted myself mentally. Except for one thing which I'm not quite ready to share just yet. I will say this, in 2012 I hope to launch my first COLLECTION! Like full blown necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. I have to make them all first. Right now they're just visions in my brain and scribbles in my little book but I can't wait to see it come to life. Supplies are being shipped to me as we speak!
I'm still keeping my hands busy. Since I received a copy of Embroider Everything Workshop, I have been practicing some of my stitching and enjoying this new experience of drawing with a needle and thread. Here's my attempt at a backstitch and Feather stitch. I did a flower!
This may be a new (and fun) way to keep myself busy when I do craft fairs. I would work on making more jewelry but I'm nervous I'll spill my beads and supplies everywhere. In Beacon this past weekend I spent some time just doing random stitches getting the hang of it, I'm most proud of the Brighton stitch in the center (the blocks), so much I can do with that!
Who knows, maybe soon I will have things available that feature some embroidery on it. :)
