|Embroidery my son picked for his teacher. And then my oldest said it looked like a giraffe on this fabric...which gave me an idea for another project...|
The event last weekend was a success, with lots of fun people stopping by to chat, buy, and compliment our products! The finger puppet stands that Kendra made got tons of comments about how cute and cool they were, and I'm hoping to find the sweet spot in pricing so the puppets themselves will sell!
|Scarecrow still needed for this set...ran out of time!|
|I had Chewbacca and R2-D2 to add in, but somehow they both got left at home. Oops!|
|Still need to make a pink Cheshire Cat...but I kind of like the grey and teal!|
We are restocked on crayon rolls (YAY!) so those will hopefully go up on etsy soon, but I still have at least 15 more cut and ready to sew!! My goal is to have around 40 ready for the fall craft show season...so I need to keep working on them here and there.
I managed to finish the teacher's gifts on time, and even before midnight! (11:59 p.m. totally counts). They will get their own post soon with more pictures I snapped the morning of the last day of school.

WIP: (Stuff sitting out on my work area and taking up space)
Brandt's Boulevard in skulls (x2 - different fabrics, another one in "Girly" fabric for a later date) - Working on this one and hope to finish it by Thursday!
|This will be another 'bright and colorful' creation, but in a much smaller size|
Start cutting and sewing the dress and pillowcase for my niece's birthday...I'd really like to get this one in the mail this weekend!
Star Wars Tote Purse -DONE! And got an order for another one, so I can't mark it off my list yet...
Embroidered pillow covers - need to cut a back piece after I figure out if I'm doing a zipper or envelope closure...I'm thinking of using my invisible zippers and doing another one from the same set of patterns...so far the fish is in the lead for what will be stitched next. Still procrastinating because I don't want to have to lint roll the entire sewing area after I cut my next piece. Not even exaggerating.
Crochet:Sea turtle lovey has his head and legs done, started on the bottom of his shell. Trying to convince myself to finish him and not jump to the regular stuffed sea turtle since there is a crochet along running for the stuffy only...
Mermaid lovey - Sea blanket is done, head is done (no hair), started on tail. Giant head is kind of freaking me out, so I need to finish her! - June goal is to finish her up!
Embroidery:Keep cutting out my backlog of bows and keychain. I didn't cut out everything in my stash, so I need to keep working on them!
NIL (Next in Line-Things I plan on and want to do, but haven't gotten around to yet...)Boronia Bowler - I really love the shape and wide open top featured on this purse, it would look amazing in just about any of my fabrics!!

January Bag of the Month (Backgammon Bag) - Either in some Effervescence fabric or maybe the Zelda stained glass fabric
Quilted pillow covers - Sasquatch fabric is ready to go, just need some spare time!
May Bag of the Month - I think I'm going with a Doctor Who random toss fabric that glows in the dark. Because I can.
UFO (Unfinished Objects that are already started but I have no set time to work on and don't want to forget about them forever!)Sedimental Quilt- all quilted, just needs squared up and binding - 2 sides are cut, need to do 2 more, when I have my cutting area cleaned off - I've been using it on the couch in the meantime because it's the perfect spring weight!
Cowls - just need buttons and ends woven in. Giving up on the one a month plan until it gets closer to craft season.
Bella II in Tula Pink Foxfield - outside is done, inside is cut and waiting for me to finish, already have someone that wants it!
Doctor Who Pick a Pocket - all the pieces are cut, just needs finished!
