here’s a little orange shelled turtle for orange friday. now we know who has been lording over this little kingdom I’ve been making lately.
I’m having fun with this colorweek but the lack of sun all week is killing me. I love trying to take cool photos but the effort involved wipes me out. I’m just too impatient. I think of all the things I could be sewing while I’m rummaging around the house for the perfect prop or the best light — like finishing bunnies! I have three new big footed bunnies just barely almost done. I was hoping to put them up for sale today but I’m going to have to push it til Monday. I’ll send an email out to the mailing list when they go up.
I was stuck on this turtle’s headgear all week and then I got a wonderful package of goodies from Claire including a copy of Feltcraft by Petra Berger. What a cute book! That’s where I found the crown idea. There’s lots of cute wizards and fairies and creatures in there, even a snail and a butterfly. Of course if I were you I’d wait for the new Hand Sewing For Fun Patterncard set (that I’m trying to convince Tim we need to do).
