Totally Slacking lately

I have been such a slacker when it come to the blog lately. I guess that isn't so good for my new years resolution. I also haven't been putting a lot up for sale in my etsy shop. I have been working but behind the scenes mostly. I have had some personal things going on that have kind of taken up some of the extra time I had but then I got let go from my tutoring job so a little more time opened up.

The exciting thing is I have been working with two wonderful artists ( who I will introduce you all to soon) who are working on some embroidery patterns for me to sell as PDF's in a new etsy shop.

I just started last week a swap with people on Flickr so this is always a lot of fun plus I know some of the girls from other swaps and they are all super talented artists.

Here are some of the most recent items I have finished.

A new Maicen girl shirt for me. It has been a bit chilly here lately so she has gotten a lot of wear. I found this pattern for the Happy Creamer somewhere on Flickr and don't remember where. I had bought this adorable tablecloth at a vintage shop that was going out of business. I still might add some cute cups or something

This is from Sublime Stitching and the pattern is from Emily Martin of The Black Apple. I though it was a sheep and people said it was a hedgehog..oops.
I picked this hankie up at the same vintage store and thought the pattern was a little like the fleur de lis so I put a french looking hedgie there. I carry this around so people can see what I make.
Current WIP. Pattern from Aunt Martha's. My mom's friend likes wine so as a thank you to her I am making her a towel.
This pattern is free over at Jacque Davis' flickr I found her adorable FREE patterns last week and whipped up this patter with the cupackes and the one below..
If you want this FREE Pattern go check out Jacque Davis' Flickr. She has a bunch of really cute and did I mention FREE patterns..
