Well we are into the beginnings of the new year that is 2017, so wishing you all a Happy New Year!
Like you all, I suppose I ate my way into a sugar coma and drank way too much. If I see any more turkey sandwiches, i’ll throw up! I don’t do new year resolutions but we did manage to buy a Nurtibullet at the sales, so a major detox & some healthy choices are on the way, once the kids are gone back to school!
In between, I did manage a few projects …………………..
I won this little sticker pack from Happy Stickers on Instagram. You can find them on Etsy here Really simple and easy to use, just peel and stick to your surface, these ones were personalized to my son’s name. Cute eh? Id love to try more in my craft room. Sorry for the last photo, too many little excited helpers!
This scarf, I did for myself for a new coat, love this yarn so soft. Its Wendy super chunky, I used some of this yarn before here and its a favorite for scarves. Its a simple cowl and I must write up a quick pattern.
I managed to fit in some Embroidery, this kit is from Tamar Nahir Yanai , you can find her new website here. I love her work and this little hoop is going on a feature wall I am working on.
My love affair with Embroidery is continuing on, I really love it, I managed to get myself some of these hand dyed embroidery yarns from Jessica of Little Twig Designs. I just need to figure out a special project for them now. You can find Jessica’s shop here.
My first 2017 order came through and its a little crochet hat and booties for a newborn, so tiny so cute! You forgot how small babies are.
I have a few plans for my Etsy shop, I have been working on some wooden jewellery designs, I just need the kids to go back to school so I can sit down with no interruptions! Also I have been working on a big embroidery piece. Its one of the biggest pieces I have ever done & its causing me a bit of stress! Here’s a peek …
Finally, are you still with me? this turned into an epic post ha!
I am loving this fabric and planning on making more hoops using it, this one was for my niece.
So what are you working on? anything interesting ? Any plans for projects in the new year?
Till next time !
