New embroidery hoops

Meet the newest members of the "hoop" family.
They are the gracious Mr and Mrs BaaBaa.
I think I am on a roll now with lots of ideas for new characters.
Will be posting some soon.

Vintage Design Fair 2013

Last weekend was the always popular Vintage Design Fair in Hatfield, Pretoria.
I love displaying my products there, it is in the heart of the university area and attracts a lot of students.
Together with the decor you can always find excellent music and food as well.

I love my new display unit. It was created using old wooden beams from the roof of my house (we are in the process of renovating) 

 Love the sheep in their dish :)

Some more products featuring our old roof trusses - storage units using glass jars and old bolts.

New set of Vintage Blocks

I can not believe that I have been making these blocks for the past 3 years (maybe 4?) They keep on charming people. Lucky I still love making them :)
This new set features 4 furry friends, a Beagle, Chihuahua, Pug and Jack Russell.
They were a set of oil paintings I did a few years ago. I think they look smashing on the blocks.

Bunny Hoops

I had these embroidery hoops laying around my studio for quite some time. Ideas have been coming hard and fast but there has just not been time to get going.
This past weekend I eventually got to them and Mr & Mrs Bunny were born ;)
I must have the best job ever, creating my dreams every day.
The next family will be some gorgeous piggies..
