My creative space ...


Breaking up wholesale order production line monotony with the new issue of MixTape.

The tiny embroideries are for lavender birds and the vintage hankie needle case is from Selina's Vintage. There's a needlework one in her shop that's really, really cute, but be quick!

For more spaces or to show off your own head over to Kirsty's.

LOVING the way your wholesale sheet of embroidery looks but sorry to read the monotony bit.

Hi Rebecca.

"production line monotony" - I hear ya. But it looks so pretty!

What linen are you working with?

I hadn't ordered any 'natural' in my original Duckcloth order but put in a second order that arrived on Monday. I was thinking of sending you a swatch of each if you're interested. Will email you.

Oh cool, that would be great!

This linen is one from Kelani, the linen I usually use for these has run out, it was a remnant but this one seems to be going ok although it's not as thick as the other one.

Linda said...

lovely photo Rebecca all the little embroideries lined up!!

Cindy said...

beautiful...it looks like a very peaceful space

Selina said...

they look so lovely though! thanks for the plug, glad you like the needlecase!

Leslie said...

I think monotony is the one thing I struggle with while crafting. Sometimes I just want everything I do to be new. But I love the embroidery you're doing! So beautiful.

Kylie said...

Hmm yes, the monotony can be brain-blowing at times, but how exquisite are the results you achieve! These are just gorgeous Rebecca. K

Katy said...

It's like you are a little sweat shop! Happy Embroidering :-)

handmaiden said...

wow, it really is a production line

Gina said...

Monotonous or not, your handiwork is sublime.

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

I wish I could production-line embroider like that! Beautiful!

sophie said...

it looks really pretty ~ can see it on the wall too :)

ArtMind said...

It must be such a peaceful activity to embroider but I'm glad you have back up for when it gets too monotone. :)

Michelle said...

Sorry to hear it is monotonous, but your embroidery looks lovely.

CurlyPops said...

It's amazing to see how the production line works. I would never have envisioned all that embroidery all in a row. Genius even if monotonous!

Sophie Isobel Designs said...

Oh all of that beautiful embroidery looks so amazing! I would love to wear it on a skirt! Such a wonderful space!

kellie said...

agree with the above ~ it does look lovely all in rows like that

Sherrin said...

wow... your embroidery is EXQUISITE!!

Lucy Bowler said...

It's a very cute production line, all the same, and so much better to do things this way rather than one by one. Call it eye candy production line instead and you might feel happier about it!!

Michelle said...

That is one cool needle case! And I love the embroidery!

littlelovelies said...

i always love your embroidery - such beautiful and simple stitches!

So this is how you do it! Beautiful embroidery!

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

I love how perfect and delicate they all look.

Alison said...

Your embroidery is really lovely. But you do need a change of scene sometimes. I love that little needlecase.

M* (Melanie) said...

A lovely and inspiring space as always

Chrisy said...

Too late for the needlecase that's sold! Darn!

Crafting /sewing for others always brings the desire for balance between creativity and production. I am impressed by you do a whole sheet of embroidering. I made lavendar sachets as a teen with each one free-hand embroidered and while i got a lot done my production rate could have been significantly improved because I always sold out.

Jenifir said...

(Hit the submit too soon) Your work is exquisite and great taste in other's (Selina's) handiwork. I am looking forward to getting my production (of felt purses) up to speed so I can buy other crafter's work.

Oh Rebecca, they look beautiful. Thanks for the nice big pic so we could have a proper look and sigh. Especially at the Dandelion, my fav.

Tamara said...

Your dandelions are beautiful.

Just found your lovely little space.

Look forward to reading more.
PS I have a little boy called edward
