Getting ready to start stitching some of your adorable pets for Christmas!โœจ
Creating a layout plan or โ€œblueprintsโ€ before beginning a new project is such an important part of the embroidery process and very much dictates how your piece will turn out.
Spend time perfecting your layout before you even pick up the needle and floss.
A huge part of my skill comes from my ability to draw out my designs before beginning my work.
The blue pen you see in this photo is water soluble and is available at Michaels. This means once you finish stitching you simply wash away the pen marks. Donโ€™t worry, washing your work will not harm it.
When I stitch on darker fabrics I use a white pencil crayon to draw my layouts. This is risky because unlike the water soluble pen, the pencil crayon does not wash off. All this means is that I have to be very careful when drawing my layout plan and then be sure to cover all my marks with embroidery.

squiggly blues ๐Ÿณ

Very excited with this one, I love the colors I've chose. I have this strong feeling that I'm going on a style that will get more and more personal but it is still far away from where I have my ideas, that the cool think with art : you have to enjoy the process. So we can call it just an introduction to something even cooler !! Many of you tells me that they can see how I shift since my wedding. The thing that changed the most I think, is that I started to not care about what people can think about my decisions or my art. Whatever we say when you are exposing yourself to the public you get judgements, and before I got affected by it way to easily. That when I realized that by me acting this way, I submit myself to the judgment of people I do not know, and that is completely ridiculous. Between the reality of the facts and our vision there is a huge difference sometimes, but it is not so easy for us human to make the difference ๐Ÿ˜. We are all imperfect and it's very good like that! That's what makes us interesting, that's what makes our story different.

Ok I swear Iโ€™ll list ornaments soon but theyโ€™re going to be at markets first. So come get one at Karbach Brewing from 12-5 today Iโ€™m HTX!

Time for my annual sappy post- Three years ago today I tossed my fam into the car and drove down to Tampa for @indieflea's debut market. I left feeling all inspired and worked my buns off the next two months to create the folklohr. I never would've opened up this embroidery biz if it wasn't for Indie Flea, and this platform they've created for these talented local folk ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ WE OUT HERE TAMPA AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU. #IndieFleaItsYourBirthdayWeGonnaPartyLikeItsYourBirthday

A bit more horsey stuff happening ๐ŸŽ  ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

This is it! The final days of my exhibition in @wearelumberjackcoffee cafe. Iโ€™m so thankful to them for having me, especially the lovely manager Tash ๐Ÿ’› I took this picture on installation day and several of these hoops have moved in with their new owners since then. Iโ€™ll be taking the rest down later this week to prepare for @solocraftfair in Dulwich on Saturday. Wish me luck! โœจ

Weโ€™re OPEN but only for another 24 hours so be quick, quick, quick.
All of these orders will have 50% donated to a place very close to our hearts all in honour of our littlest babes first birthday. He spent the first nine days of his life in our local special care baby unit so for his birthday we wanted to give something back.
All of these orders will be made and dispatched in January but you could also purchase a gift voucher for a friend!! Iโ€™m still awaiting the physical thing but they will be shipped to your address in time for Christmas!
So if your thinking of a friend that would love something we make why not buy them a gift voucher so they can buy their own! DM to enquire.
In other news how beautiful is this hoop that was custom made for @hyfrydcreations I love, love, love the floral detail and the phrase brings back all the childhood memories. #robinandbloom #shopsmall #supportsmallbusinesses #modernembroidery #thensingsmysoul #giftvoucher #charity
