thanks gala. I'm leaning towards the ladybug too, but I just wonder if it might be too "cutesy" or something...or just my own self-doubt infecting my brain probably, hah.

And I just finished this hoop for a DM donation. So fun - it's based off a Cate Anevski embroidery pattern. Love her stuff.  Smiley

I love a good strong yellow. Great stuff everyone!

I've been super busy procrastinating to get any crafting done  Roll Eyes Tongue But I got inspired to make these wee stitches recently (and by inspired I mean, I procrastinated on getting birthday presents for a couple of friends too haha). And as I am wont to do, I made more than I needed just in case I screwed them up. So I ended up with 3 pendants and 3 magnets. Now I just need to decide which 2 pendants to gift....hmmm. I'm definitely gifting the lavender one....but now it's down to the ladybug or the white flower in the circle pendant? I'll take any opinions gladly  Smiley

I got some mini stitches!! Turned into 3 pendants and 3 magnets. I forgot to put something in to show the relative size but the stitching with the spider web is about the size of an American quarter.

Close-ups of my favorite.

I started working on this a few days ago when I realized I had two friends with birthdays coming up, and like a newb, I procrastinated on getting them gifts until it was too late. But handmade gifts are always better anyway!

So what started out as a plan for two embroidered pendants, turned into 3 pendants and 3 magnets...because I can't stop myself..and because I always want to have backups in case I screw something up.

Here are close-ups of my favorites. A little stumpwork and bullion stitch.

I've been around lurking, but have been rather sluggish on the projects this year. Anyway, I thought I'd do a bit of a project dump of what I've gotten done within the last 2 months...

Two hooplas that were going to be donated to the next DM charity auction - I say "were" because the top one has been claimed by a friend because it is her favorite poem haha. I fully intend to make at least one or two more to add to the bunch though so there's that.

I also did the last IYP with Jemimah who is amazing and made these for her:

A really textured painting - it's amazing what you can do with gesso..

A wrapped necklace, made from clothesline rope, a beautiful shiny soft grey yarn, aqua wire, and white seed beads.

Ahhh, I finally received a beautifully thoughtful package from jemimah today, after the post office finally decided to hand it over.

The first thing I opened was this gorgeous wrapped necklace that is so my style! I had to chuckle a little bit because I sent her one that was very similar - great minds think alike. Next was a fantastic coiled bowl!! I love these so much because they're so handy for holding craft supplies. I've honestly been meaning to make a few for myself and now I can add another one to my growing collection  Grin And then there was also a neat abstract plant puzzle that she included. And look at that card! I'm thinking she painted and drew this herself, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to frame it and hang it up somewhere.  Smiley

Oh also, because there was an annoying run-in with someone at the post office that said her package weight was just a tad too high, she sent me a small side package containing this fantastic pouch! Made of a natural linen, and a funky fun print - I love it so much! And the candy it housed and is now totally not in existence any more haha. Also note, that jemimah also cannot count to three.  Wink

Ok, the finale. Check this out.

I asked for a piece of art to hang in my new house and she created this stunning piece. I am so in love. The colors, the texture, the hypnotic spiral. It is so lovely. My bf and I also love the playful nod to the golden ratio or section, which appeals to his analytical mind and my artistic one.

Thank you so much Jemimah!!! I would love to swap again with you any time!  Kiss

LOL jemimah - did you post that picture upside-down on purpose?

Here is a picture of the real thing. Should be work safe haha.

You guys are starting the year off with a bang! I've been bogged down in a big screen printing project that is finally over (for this round anyway). Over the last month I've made...

18 infinity scarves

6 pencil pouches (3 are going to the Difference Makers charity for auction  Smiley)

And 50 screen printed tea towels - this was exhausting! Here are a few highlights..

There is also a few FQs printed up as well, but nothing I got decent pictures of. And now I'm packing up the screen printing stuff and moving on to other things! It feels good  Cheesy

I received! I received! And it lights up hehe. Artsycandice is so funny. She said that my sweater was quite sophisticated until she added the last bit, which were the lights of course. But they're my favorite part. Forgive my ridiculous face in this picture - it's been a long trying day. But this was an absolute treat to come home to!

With the room light on...

And the room light off...

The deer silhouette is so detailed too, and the baubles sewn on are rather fun to play with  Grin It is so clever and fun and I can't wait to wear it for Christmas! Thank you Candice!!!! you made my dream come true  Kiss Cheesy

So many beautiful things!! Everyone's talent amazes me constantly.

I made this for artsycandice recently in a swap. I had a lot of fun, and succeeded in using lots of glittery things  Grin
