Happy New Projects!

Bye bye, 2020! I hope 2021 is a much, much better year for our world.

BrightSea Village has its new cinema. (The four movies featured on its wall posters are all ocean related.)

Bjerreby, my latest dollhouse carpet is also ready to roll.

And here’s what I’m working on now. I’m loving these bright colours. (It’s going to be in the ElliXS section of my website and I’m going to be all mysterious about it for now.)

 

Speed Stitching

After my false start with my next mini carpet, Bjerreby (see last post), I’m racing through it. I’m eager to finish so I can start the next project. I designed something a little different and now I can’t wait to get started. Look at these fabulous bright colours!

Also, the BrightSea Village Cinema is all stitched up and waiting to be released.

To Bee Or Not To Bee

Bee-latedly, here I am, announcing the release of the Pyramajig #1 — Bee Happy. Hooray! (A pyramajig – my invention – is a nifty little container for holding all sorts of gifts or goodies. It’s shaped like a pyramid but opens up to a neat little box.)

But wait, there’s more! I’m also releasing Newton Abbot, my new miniature carpet.

I’m now working on the next instalment in the BrightSea Village collection. It’s about time the village got a needlecraft shop.

Proof and Progress

I know, I know, I know! I still haven’t produced the much wondered about “Bee Happy” Pyramajig, so here’s proof that I am working on it. The next stage involves getting out my sewing machine, which I may not have used in the last decade. Elli plus machinery often equals catastrophe so getting the darned thing out is a major drama. I’ll have to fortify myself with some serious chocolate first.

Meanwhile I’ve still been stitching away at Newton Abbott.
