last week's work

i've been spending a bit of time thinking about what kind of work i'll be making this spring and summer (and probably fall too) since i'm not exactly sure how i'm going to find time to make as much work as i did last year... one of the things i'm considering is making more detailed work that i can cut in one sitting and embroider in another... i did some experimenting this week and came up with these:

these will be available to be made into brooches or headbands (since people inevitably want the opposite of what i've made.) i'll be popping them in to my shop this week, a few at a time.

what do you think?

snow day! for real.

even though i am beyond ready for warmer weather, it was the bean's first real snow and she couldn't get enough of it. so i guess i'll have to deal.

where did february go?

ahh, the end of the weekend, and the month. geez. can't believe it's march already, and on top of it, it's snowing. ug. february was pretty busy for us around here... we had a nice vacation, then we got home and started re-arranging our entire house, and then i started making new work again. finally.

i worked on these most of the week/end, and i'm really pleased with the way they turned out. and the bean loved them so much she actually cooperated while i was taking the photos. they'll be in the shop tomorrow, hopefully.

on a totally unrelated note, i am always happy when the ACC show rolls through town. this year, i was asked to participate in a informational session at the show about selling on etsy, which was great. (thanks for lunch, matt!) and friday, my friend kristy and i spent several hours walking the show and i was able to catch up with some artist friends i hadn't seen in awhile. all good.

so good-bye, february, and hello march! (snow, good-bye to you, too!)
