Tons of Tiny and D.E.S.I.G.N. for September


I had this project done on September 28th but have been avoiding making a blog post because it takes me so darn long to do.

More Mucha Patterns + Tons of Tiny and D.E.S.I.G.N. for August

Hi crafters!

This month leads me to the most exciting news that Hannah-Alexander has allowed me to create a second set of patterns based on her Mucha fanart: Tinkerbell, Esmerelda, and Mulan. It is very likely that I will be able to do more patterns based on more princesses in the future, as long as all these go well (which I'm very confident that they will). These patterns will be of similar size and difficulty to the first set so that everything matches (wouldn't it just be glorious to have all of them stitched and hanging together on a wall of their own?!). You can buy the current set, and the future set, via my Etsy store. Currently I'm just awaiting the non-watermarked artwork from Hannah to start work. Until then, the full plate I presented to you last month has shrunk just a bit.

Tons of Tiny and D.E.S.I.G.N. for July

Good morning crafters,

I'm getting worse about updating the blog and I do apologize for it. There's a lot of events going on right now and my days just get surprisingly busy despite not much finished work to show for it! My current work pile is as follows, and then below there will be some pictures:
- Butterfly Xstitch with beads for Stitchingpirates's contest
- Apprenticeship work for seamstress training (once a week right now)
- Birds Xstitch (for future sale)
- Star Trek Bead Dress
- Princess Daisy Bead Dress
- Glasmond's Between Day and Night Xstitch (to be mailed to her finished)
- Xstitch Pattern Re-Make for Mattsma
- Xstitch Pattern for Miskumi
- Xstitch [surprise gift] MLP
- Real Person sized robe-dress
- Two Wedding Samplers Xstitch
- One Baby Sampler Xstitch
- Beaded Cake Kit from Katie Dean
- Barbie, Monster High, and Ever After High Bead Dress Prototypes
- Kitchen Xstitch (for future sale)
- HAED Storykeep Xstitch (my first HAED)
As you can see, my plate is full! Even though only two of these events have technical due dates I find myself shuffling between everything rather frequently and the end result is, well, less submissions for large projects. And on top of all of that I still have to thank 1,513 people from April for the big front-page boom that was Hannah Alexander's Mucha Princesses.

D.E.S.I.G.N. and Tons of Tiny for June

Hello marshmallows,

This month was mostly behind-the-scenes things like pattern work on Glasmond's piece, playing catch-up with messages on deviantART (I still have 1,800 people to thank!), and further practice on actual sewing - like for dresses. Because it's mostly stuff that makes no sense to photograph it makes things look a little bare, but trust me! Things are definitely going on.

Magazine! Monochrome Eumelia! Tons of Tiny and D.E.S.I.G.N.!

Good morning lovelies,

This month has cascaded from a couple set aside plans to a lot getting done. My closet pile is now two pieces smaller, my grandpa got remarried, the second bead dress of the year was finished, the Barbie prototype is getting her skirt, my pattern work on Glasmond's piece is starting, oh... and that's right, I'm now PUBLISHED in a magazine!! Four pages all to myself! I can't contain my happiness, and though I'm sure it's been over a hundred times already, I'm going to thank Katie Dean of Bead Flowers again... it's just way too incredible. You can find me in the June/July 2015 issue number 63.
