Etsy Shop Update & Sewing

OK, I finally got the NorthEast Kingdom architecture series up on Etsy, here. I'm selling the pieces unframed but here is a sample of the way the look when framed. They will easily fit into an easel frame. I got mine from Michael's.

I'm spending the last (please be the last) few days of really hot summer weather in my sewing/dining room making more fabric bracelets. Should be up on my Etsy soon-ish. They are really a dickens to photograph.

And, on a personal note, I made these
for a brand new baby. These aren't exactly a beginner's project but I was able to get them done in four 1/2 hour sittings. I love working with felt and found the pattern for these in Scandinavian Needlecraft by Clare Youngs. I kept picking this book up and looking through it and finally, I bought it. Really fab patterns and ideas, a lot of embroidery and loads of felt love. I'm makin' some slippers next.

Hi Diana,

Your Northeast paintings are
wonderful!! I love all the vivid colors and so much imagination
in each of them.
I think your felted and embroidered baby booties are
adorable!! I may have to look into
getting that book as I have a new
granddaughter coming in December.
It would be nice to make a pair for baby and for the new Mommy too!

Hurry get your fabric cuffs on Etsy
as I think I have an overwhelming
desire to buy one...or two!!

Hugs,

Susan

Diana -- Thank you for making and posting the booties! They inspired me to buy the book and the felt and they will be for a new grandchild due in November! I love them!

Of course, I love all of the other things that you share, too!
