As promised the results of the ‘Lock down’ I had recently.
I did mention it wasn’t as productive as I had hoped, but I did get a few new things made. Some for the shop, some for me and some things that have nothing to do with being creative
…stuff that just needed doing.
As I was taking shots for some of the Christmas items, I thought I would snip some little pieces of one of our pines and tie it with this gorgeous French ribbon I have. It looked so good against our fireplace in the kitchen that I will have to do a larger one when the time comes.
I have made 2 of these stockings to start with. The star on them is made with my 100 + year old Belgian linen. I love these and may make some for our own home this year if I get time.
Next up are these clay tags. Now, these are much larger than the other ones. They measure 6.5cm across and I have used my French text stamp as a background with JOY over the top. These have not been listed yet…soon though. They are also available in red. The letters have been hand painted by me.
There is also NOEL. Now, I did have these and the JOY (in red) listed, but 11 minutes after they went onto the SHOP, they sold…all of them!!! So now I have to make more. There will be LOVE as well and they all come in a set of 2. Oh and some Scandinavian ones too! This is reason I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. I hand embroidered all of this panel…freehand too! No patterns involved here, just made it up as I went along. As you can see it is a longer lumbar type cover and the ends are in the softest blue linen. It is gorgeous and this shot does not do it justice. I just used a squishy pillow to fill it and it worked well. Will be listed shortly.
Another made-it-up-as-I-went cover! And another reason I didn’t get as much done that day. This one is also hand embroidered by me. Will be listed shortly too.
I think it looks wonderful in my favourite chair too.
The rest of this cover is a wonderful blue ticking.
So, you see not as much done as I had planned but I was happy with what was achieved. I did make some of my regular covers as well and there is still a new cover which I am almost finished and will show you soon.
I would love to hear what you think as this is a slightly new direction for me and The Shop and it is always great to hear what you all think.
Now I need to attend to my severely sun burnt back/shoulders!!!
