romantic and sparkling, this pair of embroidered hoop art pieces partners a big and little dipper constellation set that’s been crafted with sparkling thread and a rich blue fabric base. i love this creative gift idea SO much, i commissioned a similar set with the two bear constellations – ursa major and ursa minor – to give to my love
The Shulers are in full-on organizing mode this weekend. We’ve been living in chaos for too long. Case in point: the box of 60 completed hoops that I found that I never sold and/or listed on Etsy. Buried at the back of the attic and full of fun stuff. I have zero plans to re-open my Etsy shop with completed #embroidery pieces so I’m considering listing them on a separate IG account, sometime in March. Will keep you posted. I may find another box somewhere in this crazy house.
Today I went to Liverpool for a day out to look round art galleries and crafty shops!
I’ll be doing another post about other places I found, but Nook & Cranny on Bold Street was my absolute favourite!
Beautiful prints, lots of hand made and designed work, a pre made pom Pom station and make your own string ball fairy lights section, beautiful!
DIY Easter Egg Basket
Named so because the knots were thought to resemble turbans, the Turks Head Knot is the ultimate decorative – yet wholly practical – knot, which has limitless variations. Here’s the classic triple-wide bracelet, which can be made in a wide variety of materials and colors to suit any number of looks. From my recent booklet “Mini Macrame”.
