It's a work in progress...

This blog, that is.

Thanks for your patience as I fiddle!

Indie Biz Notebook

The divider pages and notebook

Supplies and pocket (with name yet to be discovered!)

The notebook had some manufacturing text on it - the front bit was covered up with the title (Indie Biz) and the inside back cover now has this little reminder.  It may be the end of the class (sad day!), but it is just the beginning on this journey.

My mom is in town for a visit/baby shower.  We're off to finish getting ready!  I'll post some pictures (look forward to a super cute diaper cake!).

Embroidery work 2

Wow, sorry it's been so long! I'm not sure where the time has gone...

Since the last post, I've started the Indie Biz 2.0 class with Leigh-Ann, Jill and Elsie. I am LOVING it, getting great info from it and it's making me think! I've set some goals for myself with this class, by the time I've 'graduated' I will:

Be blogging consistently
Have opened my own Etsy store
Be an bonafide Indie Business-lady!

I've been working on some new put in my Etsy store (!) when it more on those soon!!

Back to embroidery -

These are a few panels of a wall hanging I did for friends when their daughter was born. Her room has a Peter Rabbit theme!

The patterns for the embroidery came from coloring book pages I found on-line. There are so many great ones out there and coloring books are a great source for embroidery because they usually have such solid, clean lines that make them so easy to trace.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!
Blessings -

Embroidery work 1

Sometimes pictures and/or ideas just come to me, and if I don't write them down, often times I'll lose them! This is one of those pictures.

Embroidery has been something I've really enjoyed, but just got back into recently. This is my first project with a mix of embroidery and fabric applique. This zippered, plain jane jacket is a staple of my wardrobe, but it needed some love, so I decided to put this picture on the back. I love how it turned out! I love when a project turns out just the way you pictured it.

Happy March - Blessings!
