This week has been mushroom themed. I had been busy with the 3D cross stitch cottage that's on order but it's not due until the middle of next month. I'd been busy posting all the pics of my stuff onto my facebook page and I got a custom order from there. A mushroom with a blue door, purple flowers around the door, yellow curtains and two dragonflies one the roof, one bigger than the other. I do love how specific people can be about what they want :-) So this is the mushroom that I made from that description.
The dragonfly wings are stitched with metallic thread so they really sparkled.
Then I thought I'd better get on with an idea I'd had for a Jubilee Cottage or time would run away from me and I'd be too late! So this is what I came up with,
and a close up of the front detail...
I admit that I'm insanely proud of this one :-) It turned out so much better than I'd expected! I had an order for one in a couple of hours on facebook which I'm busy stitching up now and this one is in my etsy shop. Now I'm thinking of new occasions that I can make them for........I could make this one for the 4th of July with a stars and stripes on the flag pole :-)
So that's what I've been up to this week and the 3D cottage is growing slowly too.
Oh yes, I can now confirm the news I had a couple of weeks ago, sorry to tease you like I did! I was asked if I wanted to be featured in Craftseller magazine and I'm in Issue 11 out on May 8th :-) They are doing a piece in the Crafty Tales section about something that inspired my makes and there will be pics of my stuff, my website address and a pic of me (that is the photo on my profile). All good free publicity! Speaking of the website, did I actually tell you about setting that up?? I probably forgot sorry! Anyway you can find it here, www.hippywitchcrafts.co.uk It's a work in progress as I am totally fumbling around in the dark when it comes to web design!
Have a great week!
