How is it that when I find myself having no time to focus on things other than work, I am actually able to accomplish creative projects? Either my mind goes into overdrive or I experience “sleepcrafing.”
I was finally able to update the wall right by my desk/sewing area. I started with three hoops sometime last year, before we moved to the new flat. Bethany suggested I add more and of course, I simply had to follow her creative guidance.
After looking at this wall for months with its mismatched frames, I finally decided to focus on a theme. I gave myself about a month to collect the embroidery hoops. I find them pricey, to be perfectly honest. To make the whole project less money-draining, I didn’t buy the hoops in one go. I’d grab one or two whenever I was at the mall and a couple of weeks later, I had everything I needed. The attendants at the only craft store in Ayala started to give me weird looks during my third visit but that’s a small price to pay for what I call my cloud of fairies.
I used only one fabric to frame, Fairy Tip Toes by Tina Givens. It’s the most ridiculously adorable fabric I have ever laid eyes on. The great thing about this fabric is that it’s not a pattern type. I was able to frame designs that were different from each other but still ended up with a cohesive set of wall hangings.
Details and a shot of me brushing dust off the clock (also a DIY using the same fabric). With coffee in one hand, I felt like a painting restorer.
