I’ve added a couple of site-specific dragons: a mallard (yes, not emerald, really mallard this time) with foil dots and metallic-thread wing embroidery, and a lime of which some have an embroidered shamrock. In the future, if you want updates on things that are added to the shop, that’ll happen in a newsletter. You can […]
03 Mar update: I got a chance to stitch up a sample feltie. Let me know if you use it in something! Do you feel adventurous? I haven’t had a chance to stitch this out yet, but h Here’s a little knotwork shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day. It comes with an outline so you could […]
In the course of updating the blog software, I decided to finally do something about broken links. All the internal ones are fixed, aside from the papercraft Lego advent calendar which has mysteriously disappeared altogether. Now it’s time to do something about things that are still pointed to by off-site folks.
Still working on merging the sites – you may have noticed some shopping-cart bits showing up on this site. I’m decommissioning shop-dot silverseams.com and files-dot silverseams.com, so some links are currently broken (I think the last count was 24). The drama about Etsy’s advertising changes has made me wonder a bit about whether I should […]
Got some cleanup to do (especially over on shop.silverseams.com where I broke a couple things) but I’m off WordPress hosting and everything is on the same (virtual) machine. Once I have all the computer bits working, I’ll be putting a couple new colors in the shop… including actual mallard (with sparkles). Part of getting the […]
The embroidery machine has surpassed the four million stitch mark. That is a pretty good milestone considering most of what I do is computer-assisted conventional sewing with a much lower stitch count. But once in awhile I mix my metaphors, and the butterfly wings on the fairy dragons are probably my favorite. This one’s in […]
I’m now up to, I think, three wrong-color shipments. After the next-to-last one, I made myself a reference sheet. And then I shipped a teal dragon instead of a peacock because my brain just went “yep everyone is ordering the latest color” and didn’t even look at the reference sheet. So the time has come […]
I’ve been a little quiet lately because I was bound and determined to actually finish one of the art dragons. And I did it, albeit a little later than good marketing would prescribe – Valentine items should be listed in mid-January. I picked up a couple colors of Ben Textiles Royal Velvet that looked like […]
I made another hipster bag for my MIL’s birthday. This one isn’t my Basic Hipster, but the Lots of Pockets↪ from SewCanShe. Same approximate size, and I just left out the integral flap and installed snaps right before closing up the turning opening in the lining. I used a pre-made strap📦 because I didn’t have […]
I’m going to be changing server hosts this week, so if you see some outages or broken links, bear with me. In the meantime, have a tiny fairy dragon.
