Tiny Work Going On and More

I’ve been working on winter white Christmas sets for Pupipuki Sugar and Amelia Thimble.  I thought that a white on white combination would be something different.

10-25-15 004Last night (so I could get right to work this morning without procrastinating) I did a few quick drawings of little motifs for embroidery.  It worked, and I got right down to business early this morning.

    Sugar and Amelia are so lovely with their new Christmas sets! The embroideries are very beautiful! The books mentioning all your works are fine, it’s a great idea!
    Have a good afternoon.
    Please, make big hugs from me to Loves, he is very cute!
    Warm regards!

      Thank you so much, Catherine. They are very happy little girls right now in their new clothes. My notebooks have saved me many times. My memory isn’t what it used to be. I’ll give my chi baby a hug from you! He loves petting and hugs, he is my lovebug. ❤

      Thank you, Regina. When Amelia is in the mood to model, she is the cutest little thing, always hamming it up for the camera. My pup says “thank you” for the compliment too. ❤

    It is so nice to read about your organizing sytem of notebooks. I am forever trying to remember what pattern I used for whatever. I think all written down with a photo will be my goal.
    Adorable outfits on your girls. Is pup dressing for Halloween?

      Hi Joy,
      The notebooks have worked out very well for me. I write down everything (or try to) even if it is identical to something else. In that case, I will say “like page #__” and then I won’t have to rewrite everything. I cannot believe how many books I have filled up so far. A photo would be good for you to add if you don’t have galleries or photo books. I go back to look at my pics that are on my website and Flickr. Through the date the photo was taken and the date written in the book I can match up patterns with the pieces.
      No, I am not dressing him up. We did it once, and he HATED it! He much prefers to stay at home as himself and bark madly at all of the children. He’s a typical chihuahua.
      Thanks, Joy.
