I wanted to show off a little the 'summer' mug rug and peacock feather-tip earrings I made for a swap I'm in.  But I can't figure out how to upload a photo.  The 'attachment' (paperclip) button only adds a link :{

Wicked Tip: Embroidery On Leather

1.  Hoop a piece of cut-away on top and then carefully cut a 'window' for embroidery - this is to eliminate hoop marks.  

2.  Some people favor a sharp needle while other prefer sharp or wedge needles (WEDGE NEEDLE: needle manufacturers tell advise that this needle point    type is recommended only for sewing leather - not for embroidery) ; and some like Teflon. Teflon helps prevent…

I don't remember ever seeing or signing up for this website but now that I have seen it, I will put it on my radar list to check in once in a while for ideas.

I am here

I had forgotten about this part of Shawn's world.  I think everyday life took over and then a month overseas and now setting back into a normal routine.

I am working on some fun new single designs and I have also added new doll clothes patterns to my line.

I am having fun playing with dolls again after so many year.
