I can finally report about my latest project, as I gave the present to my friend yesterday.
This is the better part of the project, 14th century german brick stitch with naturally dyed wool and silk. Later I will post pictures of finishing touches of it.

This is picture of the fabric I (aka my seamtress Mom) am going to use for my new Cthulhu- dress. We have big historical dances few times a year and this dress should be finished just before RopeCon. It's not going to be historical dress, more like geeky,as there will be bling blibg- tentacles on the dress x)

I finally figured out how to use my handspun linen. Yay! This is 'bathmitten' for my friend. The 'design' aint as good as I hoped, but its usable and functional. I used dalarna stitch to make it, not the normal finnish one.

Lately I have been thinking about selling few of my embroideries over Etsy.com. I am just not sure should I sell them as final product (like needlebook or bag) or just as simple embroidery (so the buyer can use it as she wish). Any suggestions/opinions?

I have namaged to done quite a lot of this celtic embroidery. I also started my other commission work, but it's a bit frustrating atm. I have never done silk on silk and that's a bit problematic. Idon't like the outcome at all and I may even undo the embroidery and start again. I'll post pictures as soon as I managed to do something decent.

Sewing the 10+ meters of seam goes quite well when you are listening an audiobook. Atm I am middle of 'Clash of Kings' by R.R.Masrtin... yup... it's part of the famous 'Game of Thrones'
This time I don't have any pics to post, I have not done anything pictureworthy lately. Well, actually I have done, but it's going to be a present, so I can tell you about it after I have given it away x) ... till then... Adjöö o/
