Oh so quiet...

Here's something I made earlier....

There's been a serious lack of crafting in my house this week, no energy, no mojo, no new ideas - but I think that I've finally turned the corner today!

After my rant about Spotlight, and lots of comments regarding very similar experiences, I must thank Nikki for letting me know about Embroidery Source. I ordered some water soluble stabiliser on Wednesday and it arrived yesterday. Now I can get back to some more weird and wonderful crazy stitching ideas!

I'm having a few internet issues at the moment (Telstra wireless is extremely slow in the evenings), so I haven't been commenting as much as usual, but I'm still reading.... just very s.l.o.w.l.y

I'm glad you got some stabiliser too. I love your beautiful crazy stitching.

Do you think all this grey weather is sapping everyone's creativity? I'm still waiting to find my mojo!

I've been having awful Spotlight experiences lately too. Have sworn I will never go there again unless there is absolutely NO other option...

This is beautiful - can't wait to see more of your crazy stitching projects!!!

I know how you feel, I haven't exactly lost that loving feeling (for craft) but its certainly slower around here!

Might be because I have 2 sick kids at home this week, maybe...


love the word verification on this comment; nudge!

Consider yourself nudged back into the crafting mojo... LOL

I just read the comments and I agree with chunkychooky - I think spotlight should be employing people with knowledge (sometimes I think I should work there) because I'm always waiting ages in queues because someone asks a question and the person at the counter doesn't have a clue! I think at the very least they should be given training on simple techniques.

the cushion is very cute. I love that crazy stitching:)Nice to see somebody has the patience to sit and do that kid of sewing.

I find this work very inspiring..

Swirlyarts said...

It's gorgeous - now for a stupid question that you have already answered but... Is it machine or hand sewn?

Nikki said...

So happy that Embroidery Source did the trick for you. I'm a big fan of them.

Free-machine embroidery is a tad addictive, isn't it?

That flower is gorgeous!

As soon as I read the title of your blog I immediately though of Bjork... "It is oh so quiet, it is oh so still, you're all alone and then starts another big riot". Or something like that. Great song!

We have similar issues with our optus wireless connection - very frustrating!

Michelle said...

love the stitching...
and thanks nikki for a great site to look at...
hope the mojo is back real soon...
but i do think you need a bit of a rest after sewing like a mad women for the last market...

I had another trying Spotlight moment yesterday....how hard is to add up 30 buttons at 25c each????
And they only pay minimum wage.And they never have any thing you want.
Why do we still give them our custom?
Nice free style stichin' by the way

Karin said...

Yeah. Spotlight schmotlight. Usually not a good customer experience! I often come out of there not having gotten what I wanted in the first place. Sigh.......

Beautiful work! I will have to check out those links. Cool!
