Homely Sewing

I've had homes and houses on the brain a bit recently as I'm moving house over the next couple of weeks(!) At the moment, the plan is to spend my time between the two houses (I'm lucky enough to be in a position to do that) so I can carry on crafting and selling as normal. I gave this a rather laid back test run this week and it all seems hopeful.

The little cozy home above was part of the test run. He has been sitting in my sketchbook waiting to be turned into something stitchy for a while now. 'Cozy' was an idea for a softie (and will be made into one soon) but he sprang to mind after receiving the cutest embroidery book in the post before I went to house 2.

I think the title translates to something like 'small embroidery album' although not being able to read japanese, I have no idea. I saw this book over on Mushroom Meadow's blog and loved the cute little stitches so much I have to get my own copy. The stitches are so simple and sweet, I really had to get stitching straight away. I've put a couple of my favourite pictures from the book over on my flickr.

While the crafting is unaffected by the house moving, the blogging seems to be. I'm going to try to post every other day from now on and I will get some more pieces in the little shop soon.



  1. Cozy is very cute! He would make a nice gift for someone who just moved into a new home.

  2. Thanks Patty! I had been trying to think of something to do with the little guy xo


Thanks for your comment!
It's so nice to hear what you think...
