I would like to first thank the readers who took the time to leave me comments this week or sent me an email. I really would have responded in normal times but the long hours spent between the school and taking care of Finn while finding out that this horrible cough is in fact bronchitis... well you get the idea! Thank you enormously for making the effort though, it really doesn't go unnoticed. In these times of Pinterest when most blog traffic comes from pattern links and random pins it is wonderful to feel that someone actually read and enjoyed what I am doing now!
The bronchitis has really hindered all things sewn and I find myself mostly sitting there trying to learn how to draw again. The idea of hand printed christmas wrapping paper sounds appealing right now, the mistletoe bellow might be a bit time consuming but nice.
I am thinking of changing how I stamp the berries by reversing the pattern. On a darker paper I could stamp them in white or convert the entire design to silver or gold. Time will tell. A glimpse of my new feather and tools bellow. The Kraft vintage tray has been uber convenient to keep all the carving equipment corraled neatly and ready to go.
