I finished the first cuff of the batch and made myself a matching thumb ring :) I'm keeping these because I've sold or given away all of the ones I've made so far. I won't be selling any rings...too many finger sizes out there!
*In case you're wondering: the beautiful wooden ring holder was a gift from my friend Margie and the thing holding the bracelet is a cholla cactus skeleton.
It has been a while since I've drawn with the pyrograph. I love making up the design as I draw along and it makes each design unique. I'm making twenty leather cuffs and maybe a couple of these. I'll let you know when they're available at my shop.
Fun embroidery/bookbinding project I did over the weekend using my hellebore watercolor illustration. I transferred the image to the bookbinding cotton cloth using Iron-On transfer paper from Strathmore and added some embroidered details. I bought these sheets many, many years ago from Amazon, I don't know if they still sell them.
If you want to try your hand at book binding this is a good step-by-step tutorial.
This weekend I made a quilted pot holder using two of my Bookhou's triangles fabric scraps, wool felt for the inside, a tiny piece of Kokka red polka dot fabric and a thin strip of leather. Quick, small sewing projects like this one are so satisfying.
There is nothing I enjoy more than putting together a little gift
& taking my time to make the wrapping extra pretty.
This time I gathered items for a stamping kit to give along with my book and wrapped it furoshiki style using the linen wall panel I did in collaboration with Bookhou.
***This is NOT a giveaway, it's a gift I made for a good friend of mine :)
My birdies flew across the Atlantic Ocean and landed at Waitrose Garden in the UK. They've been popping up in the newspaper, on several product tags, packaging and in-store displays. I you see any of them please tell them I said hi :)
