Been dropping all sorts of vague hints and doing all manner of clandestine messaging with some friends about the new direction that my crafts and perhaps, even, my career might take in the future.
Said friends have been so so so supportive, thank you everyone, i love each and everyone of you for all the kind words and encouragement you've given me.
So here's the result! (granted, a very simple one, but a result nonetheless)
This is my first piece. I designed it on rough graph paper... the print on the paper was so bad you can't even find the grid lines (which reminds me, I need to get myself some good software), and it's actually my first finished model, done for Mother's Day. Designer: Me. Model stitcher: Me also (so sad, but I have kind volunteers now)
It's not a big stitch, but is something small enough and easy enough that I hope that people will want to pick up and stitch one day... and there are only a few colours to use. In fact it can be done in a day. Now is this a good start? I do hope to be able to market designs some day.
Thought of a certain "style" but I like so many styles, so many colours that am hard-pressed to stick to one. My chocolatework piece is coming along nicely ... that one belongs to another design line altogether. Guess it doesn't hurt to be diverse.
ok, I'll stop selling it here :) I mentioned to some boards that I was up to secret projects. This is one of them... there'll be more coming (more intricate ones, too....as this one was whipped up on the spot in conjunction with Mother's Day) .... wonder if my Ma will like it ...
