A little Rusty Assemblage and a Wintery Sneak Peek!

Assemblage has always been a challenge for me. I tend to want to overwhelm a piece with a bunch of different components so restraint is something that doesn't come naturally to me. But I think the more I work on these the better I get at picking the great moments to feature and holding back on a bunch of unnecessary clutter.

Case in point: I made this little assemblage with some stuff I had around the house. Sweet and simple; I had a bunch more cogs and gears I was thinking to add on but decided against it in the end.

Annnnndddd.....I finally have started on a Game of Thrones bag! I'm excited to see how it turns out. Some of my favorite patches so far:

Making Messes is How I get It Done

I really can't seem to get much accomplished unless I make the biggest mess possible. I feel like I have to have all my supplies at hand and the follow picture is evidence to this statement...

I've been working on some mess making recently and although I'm not ready to show finished pictures yet, here are some super awesome close-ups of some really fantastic textures.

Doctor Who, a new Generation

I've slowly gotten to the point with my patches where I think I'm about done making them, and I'm ready to start assembling. That is a slow process and so far I have 4 bag parts put together so when I get through these I'll have a bunch of new stock for the shop! Plus I still have enough patches to assemble at least 3 or 4 more! But I must admit, I have put this gigantor project aside to work on a few side projects this week.

I was commissioned by a lovely lady to make a Doctor Who bag for her daughter's birthday. I was skeptical that I would be able to finish it in time, but of course when I throw myself into a project it goes a lot faster and I got it done inside of a week! This is not typical; it definitely helped that I had some of the patches already pre-done. Take note! I have some new reference patches - some from the older seasons and a few from the most recent. (For any DW fans, I must say that the new companion is spunky, but I'm not in love with her yet...time will tell). Only the Rory patch didn't make it on the final bag; it got switched out for some sunflowers that fit a bit better =)

Limited Edition Fat Quarters

I recently hosted a swap on craftster where the idea was to print FQs for your partner. Guess I'm obsessed enough with screen printing my own FQs that I want to make everyone else do it now too haha. Anyway, here a few custom designed prints I made with specific people in mind. I loved pushing myself to do printing I might not normally do for myself. It's also a great way to brainstorm new ideas for prints for my shop =)
