the slow stitcher

Not my work.

I have no pictures to show of my own work, but I do have crafty pictures…

The hub-unit is really good with his hands and artsy to boot. He made this little coronet for Alison, who will be a flower girl at my sister’s wedding in July. He took over after I complained about how difficult it was to wind floral tape around the wire, and this is the end result:

Isn’t it pretty? We have to make another one for the other flower girl so I’ll be buying more of the supplies and leaving him to it. ;)

I also received mail art from Kita! It was a lovely surprise since the mail out date hasn’t even rolled around yet. She included many tea sachets as well as Mary Engelbreit teapot stickers, which I can’t show here because they are on my fridge.

The pictures aren’t great. I stubbed a toe this afternoon and it’s hurting something fierce so I couldn’t stand properly to get a good shot. Plus, I was too lazy to adjust my camera’s settings to compensate for the poor lighting and just used the flash. Sorry!

  2. The coronet is so sweet – I hope you’ll show us pictures of your daughter wearing it. The mail art is lovely, too!

  3. Lovely pictures!

    I am sooooooo sorry about your toe! I feel your pain. I stubbed my pinky toe a few months ago. My pinky toe stuck out at like a 45 degree angle away from the rest of my toes. I could barely walk on that foot for 2 weeks and couldn’t wear any shoes other than flip-flops for two months!

  6. I love the teapots. Do you know who the designer is? Sorry to hear about your toe. I remember in Dec. my husband was coming back from a year-long deployment and I dropped a heavy piece of office equipment on my toe. When my boss asked why I was crying I said my husband wouldn’t want a wife with an ugly, swollen foot. What a dork I was, but it hurt for almost six weeks.
