I haven't posted in a while because I have been all over the place and people have been in from out of town. Namely Roxy and Mabel! what a treat!
Anyways here is my on the go travel kit. I am taking this with me to Costa Rica and it will be my mini entertainment center along with photocopies of my favorite cross stitch patterns and 2 good books. It is just an up cycled Altoids container I found in the trash at work. it fits embroidery scissors in perfectly. It also doubles as a mini first aid kit with matches, needles and band aids. I suggest you make one (or ask me to make you one) for your next trip! See you in a week!
This cross stitch is for my hair cutter. She takes her dog to Hair Metal with her while shes working and Cha Cha growls and barks and shes always saying "SHUT UP CHA CHA" so I thought I'd make her a funny cross stitch.
I have been an artist my whole life. I have always loved sewing, collage, typography, embroidery and making things pretty. It led me going to college at Pratt Institute and and from there I worked every job imaginable till i found pre-press/graphic design where i am working currently. I hope to one day open up Brooklyn Craft the craft supply store in Brooklyn. A store that's like a craft fair every day. I love sailing and biking and this blog is all about what takes up most of my time, unless of course I am drinking at the bar.
