I’m clearing more of my list in anticipation of not being able to do a lot of sewing next week.
This project has been sitting in a box since last March when I bought the fabric (Water Bouquet in mint by Amy Butler, bought from Saints and Pinners and blogged about here), cut out the pieces, made up the ribbon tails but got no further. Quite simply I didn’t like my ribbon choices and never quite mustered the enthusiasm to stitch them together.
After a play around at my desk, I changed the tail colour and felt happy with my new choice. It is very green but with the bright splashes of colour in the body works well, I did try some pink and some gold in with the green but it just looked messy.
The obligatory ‘lined-up’ shot, minus the eyes in this case.
I spent today attempting to photograph all the new stock, but it was really hard to capture the colours. In the end I went for an over exposed shot of the Lavender Bird, even though it washes the colours out a little they are truer than when using the auto settings.
For now they are listed here on Folksy. As I’m still working on the new site, I see little point adding new stock to the existing one (which is still very much up and running, I should add).
Phew, that’s another thing ticked off, right what’s next? 😉
