I forgot to do my blog yesterday. Oops! I made myself have an afternoon and evening off from crochet animals as I couldn't sleep wondering about attaching pipe cleaners to a stick insect, then when I eventually did get to sleep, I woke up at 5 pondering the same problem. Can anyone say 'obsessing'!
Yesterday I tried to finish my bee, I did all the legs and was pleased with those, but I had to change the wings. I finished him today and the sun is out so hopefully there will be a picture up soon. I finished typing up the pattern for him too.
I spent a lot of yesterday trying to set up my own Payloadz account to sell my crochet patterns. I currently use James' account which is fine, but it means he gets the money in his account (not so fine!) It was easy enough to set up, but the features I want only come if you pay and I only wanted the free account at the moment. To cut a long story short, I signed up and they charged me for the premium account after I had uploaded all the PDFs onto the new account and changed all the buttons on my website. They have now been changed back and I am trying to get my money back :@(
I made one of the posters for the Embroiderers' Guild. We hoped to have one outside the venue to attract people in. We will see what people think!
I still have several bits of Yoda to do before he can be put together and then I can hopefully get on with a piece of canvas work for James' mum, she liked the design, but it took a long time. I volunteered to do it as a fun project. Sometimes it is nice to do as you are told in an embroidery rather than doing it all yourself.
Right, I am off to photograph a bee!
I live in Newcastle (UK) and I have been a professional embroiderer for over 10 years.
