The thing I love about crazy piecing is that you can just let loose, embellish and embroider away to your hearts content. I suppose it's a bit like colouring in and being allowed to go over the lines.
I started this piece on wednesday night as a ''thinking'' piece. I just wanted to enjoy working on cloth with no speciific aim except to clear my head. My mind has been all over the place this week and I wasn't up for making big decisions re books, purses or anything. It worked, I feel very focused today, I have ordered more purse frames including some large ones that I am hoping will be more like handbags. I will finish this first though then formulate a plan for other stuff because I did promise you another mini show and tell about books and I hate to let you down.
Thankyou too for the rush to buy my purses. There is still one left in the shop although it's a white one and you seem to prefer colour, something to bear in mind for next time. I have also moved some stuff from Big Cartel to Etsy and will probably close the Big Cartel shop. Etsy seems to suit me better for some reason. There are some of you who I owe e-mail to. I am on it honestly. I feel so bad sometimes that I am soooo slow replying to people. When the day comes that I never get a single comment or e-mail I will know the reason why and not be suprised at all. I promise I will beat myself severely and you will hear from me before the weekend is out. As for my sons trip to Sweden, well he went swimming yesterday in Lake Malaren. He said it was FREEZING. Those of you who are in Sweden will know how much of a bad idea that was, suffice to say I am expecting him to come home next week with flu! ( I know that cold environments don't really cause flu but I prefer him to have flu over frostbite!!)
