New designs!

Saturday, June 20, 2009

As I have had the entire week off Uni, I have been busily crafting away for the upcoming market (Kraftbomb and the Devonport Craft Market). The week has gone by SO fast, but I have managed to completed 27 new wall embellishments, 8 new magnets and 9 or so new brooches.

I'm really interested to see how the brooches are received, I've worn some of my prototypes out and have had a few people stop me in the street to ask where I got it from so I'm taking that as a good sign!
I love the new wall emebellishments, they came out really well. Both the Nga Huia and Kereru I have done in several different fabrics so will see how they go. It's always a bit of a risk coming up with a new design.
Two other designs I am still making (and hope to have ready for the markets!) are a little owl and a squirrel. These will be in keeping with the little woodland inspired creatures I already have, like the Fawn and Rabbit.

It's been a really full on week this week, I've been having physio for my neck which I have put out by hunching so much over my crafts, and over my lap top so have been feeling VERY uncomfortable. Only now do I no longer look like a rugby player with no neck movement, still have a few more sessions next week, but should be as good as new after those.

Wow that green paisley fabric converted splendiferously into a birdie, I love it!
