I have been selling a few things on etsy of late, it's very exciting when someone I don't know and who has never had their hands on my work buys something.
My work is now in Italy, Texas and New Jersey.
It's even more thrilling when someone who doesn't know me and hasn't handled my work has faith enough in my skill to commission me to create something and pays me before the job is done.
I am chuffed to bits.
The last of my little stitchers completed their bunnies this week, aren't they fab.

We set off at half six this morning with our new gazebo and it rained for most of the day.
The weather didn't dampen our spirit though, we purchased cinnamon buns and I cracked on with a sock. My assistant worked hard and you can just spy him having a much needed hot chocolate from his christmas Thermos, it used to belong to Father Christmas - but that's another story.
The remaining Easter Bunnies have hopped over to etsy.

Almost ready for Saturday at Rode Hall, just some scarves left to embroider,
The hide has been made in to a few things including this bag, the tablecloth lining is bonded to it giving it a weird rubbery feel.
Perfect stitching and I couldn't even locate a leather needle, I'd be in trouble on Sewing Bee.
It's not meant to be reversible - although it's good enough to be -
I just like to show the up-cycled lining.

I bought this fabric from the Textile Society Fair a couple of weeks ago, it is from a woven French tablecloth. It attracted me because it's like my favourite Welsh Tapestry.
I thought it would be perfect for a duffle bag that you could stuff full for the beach, it can be thrown in the washer and you have the pleasure of seeing the reverse weave on the inside.
A French blanket from the same lady, it's Orla before there was an Orla.
Now residing in Texas!

A gorgeous bit of embroidery I found last week, the back is as neat as the front.
All of the items I am listing are in my etsy shop, click on the didyoumakeityourself link, or if you are in the area I will be attending a top notch farmers market which does occasional crafts a week on Saturday.
