New case and brooch

finally put my latest diana mini case on my etsy shop. hammering studs on to the cases is not one of my favourite things to do so i did put it off for a little while. but it's done now.

recycled blue checked cotton with hand embroidered squares with coloured embroidery silks. i wanted to do some hand stitch on the case but not over-whelm it. the case is lined with hot pink felt and the stud fasteners are bright orange. the seams are sewn with a pale pink blanket stitch. there are more photos on my etsy shop

i have also listed a small brooch. it's a printed illustration i have done of a churpy owl. he is bright, bold and quirky. perfect to be worn in all seasons.

i should really get ready for work. but at least i've got some new photos to work from that i can take with me. i'm really feeling the urge to do an embroidery. not done a proper illustrative embroidery for ages. hopefully my doodles will come out okays.

Nothin like listening to a bit of Scott Matthews while train-ing it. I love visiting mates, but train journeys can be a rite arse. I forgot to pack any sewing this wknd so im relying on my fone fully. Music and Facebook are goin to have to get me through it. Then i have a few hrs spare b4 i have to go to work. Total gayness.

oh boy oh boy

I've not been up to too much today. Went in to work for a bit. Sorted out me bar ready for the prom we have 2moro eve. Got to make some cocktail menus as i've decided it's high time we spruce it up a bit and have some funky cocktails. Plus can try them out 2moro eve. See if any sell. We aren't the cheapest bar around, more functions and large events so i don't know how many 18 yr old prom goers are gonna get involved. £3.50 each or 2 for £6.00 i was thinking. Obviously need to make a profit, but not undermind our price range. Same sorta price as the bars and pubs in my town. Ou excited. Though i haven't actually tried most of the drinks i've picked. I've picked drinks we can easily do without investing in too much new stuff. hmmm... may have to have some strange drinks when im out 2nite.

This is my doodle i did last night. I'll probably end up sewing it. I mean, that's what it was originally drawn for. I only coloured it as it was something to do while watching the picture box.

Embroidered square Diana mini

Nearly finished this little beauty. Just need to add some studs. Think orange. Its been recycled from a tea towel which has Sat in my draw for ages and neva been used. So i decided to give it a new home. I actually think it was too funky lookin to be a tea towel. I've got just enough left to make something small with. Maybe a little purse. Embroidered of course.
