Keep sewing and carry on

Hello friends,

It's midway thru' Jan and I'm sorry to report that my sewing hasn't been productive. Lately for the past one week, I've been plagued with bad sleep and ghosts are chasing me in my dreams. I wake up when I can't outrun them. What's worse is the ghosts FLY. Hopefully I can get better sleep soon so I'll stop getting these daily gripping headaches. I've read that you could die from taking too much paracetamol but when you have a pounding headache, you have no choice.

I updated my Etsy shop today with two items. The first one is my sexy zippy wristlet. I showed you the embroidery in a previous post. The wristlet took longer than expected to construct. It's a little hard to think straight when your head is pounding. This morning I made the handle which I embroidered with feather stitches as well. But instead of french knots, I went with daisy chains.

The flying pigs drawstring pouch I made a while ago. (see this post) Although I put it up for sale at VivoCity, no one bought it. It puzzled me as I sold so many other items. But no point spending time mulling over it. So I thought why not pop it in the shop.

Would you guys do me a favour? Go favourite them at Etsy. (if you have an account) Thank you.

I made a few other sexy zippy wristlets using premium linen cotton, some of the fabric I've used before and a couple are new fabric from my stash. I really love looking at my sexy zippy wristlets. You know what? I've never given myself a sexy zippy wristlet before. It's so sad huh? Time, laziness, lethargy, headaches - these are my enemies.

Echino beige

Yellow Green Pseudo Patchwork

Echino Fuchsia

Yuwa Green Roses


Echino Hot Chocolate

I have roughly 3 weeks left to make more items for my first craft market date in 2012. It will be on 4th and 5th February at VivoCity. I'll see you in my next post.

Sorry to hear your head hurts I would be surprised if you died from taking paracetemol you would have to take handfuls for that to happen. Your bags are looking lovely. Shame your dreams are about ghosts and not the half dressed men from previous posts isn't the brain a funny thing you fill it with lovely images and look what you get back.
