New Pillows in progress!

New Pillows in progress!

New pillows in progress!

So, for the last two days and foreseeable future my living room is covered in sewing fallout. I’ll be quite happy to stock these in my etsy shop soon! I recently made listings for custom portraits and for custom invitations, but stay tuned for some invitation & game packs and some new illustrations and posters! I’ve also been thinking about making another baby quilt. I (finally) made a flickr account last Monday, and Laelia’s quilt has been very well received. I am so entirely flattered, especially because it is my first quilt and Anna Maria Horner herself gave her compliments. (I’ve previously covered my love for all things Anna). Now I’m just kicking myself for waiting so long to start a flickr! It was on my to-do list since October…

I also got a call from my favorite old boss to do some potential freelance plush design. I really hope it works out! Designing plush is something I really miss, almost as much as I miss designing costumes! A few of the items I’ve designed were photoed in the nursery post, if you’d like to check them out. So this weekend I’ll be putting together my plush portfolio, and maybe wash kitty–Kitty has been Laelia-loved-on. Getting my portfolio together has been on my to-do list for a year, and since I’ve been in such a productive state lately, I think there is no time like the present to get that done! Also, in addition to adding a portfolio page to this blog, I’d like to add an apartment tour, hopefully in the next couple of weeks  (but if this freelance works out, it will most certainly be delayed). 2011, I’m feeling good about you so far.
