How great is this little collection! I especially love the Abraham Lincoln portrait... and the creepy clown.

My brooches are in the paper today, which is something nice to wake up to! It's also my brothers 30th Birthday. So Happy Birthday to Justin in Sydney. I had better pop down to the corner store and grab a copy or two..

I've made a little Bee brooch for sale in the store. I'm going to be posting others as soon as they are completed. I'll also have a new cross stitch chart available for sale in the next week as well. It's a funny one that was illustrated by a good friend. Hopefully this collaboration will bring about more in 2008.

Taking inspiration from my previous post with the dancing cross stitch I've been wondering around the internet and found out more about my new obsession - Wycinanki (pronounced Vee-chee-non-key) otherwise known as Polish paper cuts. I'm in love with the colours and everything about them. Now I just have to get my hands on some...

I was given this lovely (I think it's Dutch) cross stitch book by the my fantastic co worker Elise. I think it's from the 70's, possibly 60's and I'm very lucky to have it. She found it intact at an op shop with all these other loose leaf bits and bobs inside. I'm planning on doing one of the projects in the book over summer. So lets see how i go with that...I'm not going to promise anything. But it is definitely an aim!

Well... besides neglecting this blog a bit I've been making brooches that have headed up to Pink Inc in Braddon,Canberra. This as well as looking at possible projects for the impending baby Bey.. and the long awaited birthday present owed to Jane. I had best get to work!
This is quite an old piece that I'm looking to complete this summer.I'm not sure how I found it and I'm lucky to find that it has a completed edging. So it's all now down to the colours to do it in... I shall keep you all posted with the results.

Too funny, this is exactly what I think a Bertha would look like, and now you can make her your own. Bertha is the work of Artist Sarah Young the organiser of the Brighton Craft Fair and Brighton Art Fair (UK). This is a tea towel that you can sew into your own doll. You can get hold of Bertha here and view more of Sarah's amazing work here and on her blog here.
