Quiet in here. And I am starting to think messaging is broken since I am trying to get in touch with like 5 people with zero luck. :/

I claim Design Vigilante for an embroidery hoop and maybe something else.

1/0/0

Hi! My name is Trish and I live on the coast in New Haven, Connecticut (UNITED STATES) with my wonderful husband and our silly ham of a dog, Conan the Barkbarian. I am 32, how did that happen?! I feel much younger. I am originally from Texas and don't think I will ever get used to winter. I am a professional pet portrait painter (oils on canvas.) and work for a local rock climbing gym. Sewing and embroidery are currently my most loved crafts but I also knit, crochet and dabble in a ton of other crafts. I am also very passionate about positive pit bull education and do volunteer work for a local rescue.

My favorite color is kelly green, especially paired with browns, khakis and blues. I am not really a fan of bright primary colors paired together, much more into neutrals. A bright color paired with a neutral is usually great! Themes I like:

forest animals- especially foxes, raccoons, moles, skunks and badgers
fantasy (western style dragons especially) My favorite books are Game of Thrones by George RR Martin, Enders Game by Orson Scott Card and anything by Brandon Sanderson.
Zombies, zombie forest animals would totally rule!
tattoo flash, think anchors, sacred hearts, etc.
pit bulls
classic video games, (Zelda, Gradius (the first one only), Super Mario Bros, Burger Time and Tetris are the faves)
dia los de muerte/ sugar skulls
I collect Maneki Neko's (Lucky Cats.) Make me some, draw me some, crochet me some, embroider me some!!!
Artsy Imagery of Classic Nintendo, vintage typewriters, classic vespas, vintage cameras, vintage sewing machines.
I also think maps are also pretty nifty. Especially old maps.
I am a huge fan of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings.
Ryan Berkley Art.
Dinosaurs
anchors (nautical)
Unicorns (very Lisa Frank in the 80's style) Think pink with rainbows!


I don't wear jewelry of any kind. (although occasionally there might be jewelry related things for gift giving.)
I don't really like floral prints unless they are very modern. (some muted florals for embroidery hoops may be an exception, look at my wists for ideas.) I especially love ikea fabrics.
I am allergic to cigarette/cigar/marijuana smoke
Also allergic to perfumes/flowery scents/patchouli (most essential oils in soaps and stuff are ok)
Nothing religious please
clothing/aprons etc Stencils, Screenprints or Applique only please. No iron ons or puffy paint or any of that stuff that tends to not last very long at all.


BIG WISHES = *** but I will love anything you choose to make/send. Thank you for choosing me!!!!!!

We really love Dwarven Forge stuff. Also stuff like tiny treasure chests or skulls, etc.
- plaster
- flocking

Now just have to wait for the post office to be open, dumb holiday weekend!!!!
