Acrylic Painted Progressive Pride Flags

I have developing a really cool series of projects over the last couple of weeks.

I became enthralled with the progressive pride flag, or as I like to call it the Inclusive Pride Flag.   It includes the trans and people of color groups into the overall rainbow.

The Inclusive Rainbow flag uses 11 different colors, so that means in order to recreate it with acrylic painted canvases-  11 different painted canvases!

Holiday Hooray is a go!

 

I am thrilled to announce that the 14th Annual Indie South Holiday Hooray is on in Athens, GA!

This will be an outdoor event with strict face mask and social distancing requirements.

There will be over 75 vendors, including Geek in Stitches.  I will be there with my first 10x10 canopy!

Small Batch Soy Candles Are Coming

I found a new interest.  I was nearing 250 or so face masks, when I realized that I needed something that was a little different from sewing.

I had purchased a number of Earl Grey candles from someone in New York and I believe that is what took me down this path.

I have been making slow progress over the last 3 months.  I've had so many mask orders that it slowed my testing down.

As of early September, I believe I have reached the point where I can begin producing the soy-based candles!

Migrating from Craft Show to Square Shop

There are definitely a lot adaptability going on for everyone these days. 

The craft show circuit has been hit hard.  

All of the local venues have canceled their craft show events.  I was really looking forward to making solid advances in 2020.   

We are all hopeful that they can be rescheduled at sometime in the future.

Like most people, I have been performing my IT job at home.  Things are finally somewhat moving into a new rhythm.

I will finally begin moving more of my handcrafted products to my Square Shop.

Quilted Fabric Mosaic Designs

This is a sneak peak!

I have been working on a number of designs that are created to look like mosaic tiles.  These are all created with fabric, quilted and will be framed.

I have started with sea turtles and will be expanding to include other designs.  These should start to be available by mid to late March 2020.

New items arriving at my show booth

I have been developing a new of new items that I'm excited to bring to my show booths.  The first 4 are ready to make their appearance at the Indie South Handmade Lovers Valentine craft show.

The first item is a large variety of key chain fobs, featuring a great many fabric combinations.  These are just a few...

Patterned and textured fabric styles...

Floral styles...
