Hippie Embroidery

I had a photo of mine published as an example in this article written by Arlee Barr on the Mr Xstitch site. Click on the link to read it. It's a great article and it made me realize that yes...my work is hippie embroidery

Arteries – Hippie Embroidery


Pictures Finally!

SO I was determined today to get some pics uploaded. I knew it would take half the afternoon so I just sat here and winded trims while they loaded. I have been busy organizing my studio still. Cant get over how much organizing I seem to be doing. Was it really that much of a mess? BTW! great idea about the door Arlee but there really doesnt seem to be anyplace around here TO scrounge. I did find an ikea table for 45 euros though. I am saving ;)

Here are a few shots of my little shoes I have been making.

I just SO love to make these I'm not sure why I stopped. I think they would make great christmas ornaments. They are only 2" long! SO I may make some more of them. Don't know yet.

Also worked on this stocking. I love blue even in christmas.

In fact, I tend toward unconventional even during christmas.

My tree was always white lights and crystal with hints of gold. I do miss all my christmas ornaments. This will be my first year with a tree here. We have went to Moirax to the familys the last two years so no need for a tree. This year they are all flying up HERE! Even grandfather. The doctor cleared him for the flight so we are very lucky to get to have him for christmas. I am very happy about it. I have no decorations for my tree though :p Guess I better get busy ^_^

Still slow

The wait for my own internet is dragging out unbearably. I had heard stories of how bad it could be but I thought they were exaggerated. They aren't.
Now I'm not sure if I have my facts straight on this so dont quote me on it, but here is how I understand the situation to be. There is one company here in France that controls all the lines. The other companies rent the lines from them. Supposedly if you move into a house or apartment where the line wasnt activated with the company you are chosing to use, the company that owns the lines has been known to take their own sweet time in activating it for you. Such a situation seems to be the one we have ran into. D has spoken to them several times and they say everything is taken care of. We are still waiting....
In the meantime I find myself putting off posting as I dont want to battle the internet to upload my pictures. Today I chose to post without pics. Too many days have gone by without.
I havent let the internet problem slow me down though. I have been busy. I am still settling into my studio and I think I will be for awhile. I need a few pieces of furniture to make it more workable and frankly we can'tafford it at the moment. Moving here pretty much broke the bank! It is set up well enough for me to do some work though. I need a table for cutting, laying out, etc so all big projects are on hold.I dont want to be moving back and forth between this room and the dining room table. This week I worked on another crazy quilt stocking, this one in blues. All the embroidery is finished on that and I only need to sew it up. Two velvet bags have their embroidery finished also and again...just need to be sewn up. I also put together two sweet little fairy boots for christmas ornaments. They are all finished and I promise I will post pics of them soon.As soon as I can brave the uploads...


Fall Colors

and Snowy Mountains

just a couple of the reasons I think I'm going to like it here :)

I am busy!

Things are still slow here with the internet...and with me. I went and hurt my back this weekend and I have been a crip ever since. Not being able to get around means plenty of time to sew though! I finished this sweet little celtic heart bag

and went on to start this harvest moon bag

and also this spiral sun bag

plus I have been busy uploading photos...which takes all of my patience...and put a few new listings on my cymberrain shop.

A few of my bags and a christmas stocking.

I hope to finish more listings tonight or tomorrrow.

So how has your week been so far?

Poor Internet

How I wish I had a decent connection again. Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful for what I have, but I'm afraid that I can't get much done these days with such a slow connection. Loading pictures is a long boring process and I find myself giving up long before even half of them are taken care of.I already feel so behind having put my life on hold for a month to move. Every minute I waste with this messy connection is one less minute to sew! So...forgive me if I havent been posting much. It's only a temporary thing. I have lots I want to tell you all every day, and then I remember what a pain it is to get on and I don't.
I have finished several velvet bags and all three of my christmas stockings I was working on. I still don't have pics of them all but here is a shot of some of my bags.

I do love working on these. Right now that's about all I can do. Too many things on my mind to work on anything more complicated. These are my therapy! *grin*
Hope you are all havinga good week!
