I always wanted to try a more free style of embroidery, it is more demanding but the result is so worth it! I picked one of my photos as inspiration for this hoop, it's part of the temple of Poseidon against a blue sky. This is a one of a kind embroidery hoop, part of my "inspired by Greece" series :-)

Wishing you a lovely day,

Summer is the best time for reading, and as a bookworm I have a box filled with bookmarks, many are from bookshops but some of them are handmade by me! Like this corner heart bookmark, it's the one I've been using lately as it's so easy to use and looks really cute when the book is closed too :-)
Wishing you a lovely week,

These mini banner flags are such fun to make! Me & you, shine bright and the diamond are already in the shop. I'm writing down ideas for new designs :-)

Hope you have a lovely weekend,

Working with paper

Now I understand the impact of Valentine's day to commerce. I think I made around 70 paper hearts and matchboxes in the months of January and early February. I do enjoy making matchboxes so I'm working on a couple of new ideas :-)

Hope you have a lovely day,

Early Christmas

My work space suddenly got very Christmassy :-)
Working on personalized trees and a garland! It's the perfect time for me as I can take things slow and not stress like I do when the holiday rush begins.

Wishing you a lovely new month,
Aleka

On my working table


Finally the ideas are flowing! I am working on some new matchbox designs and I have some ideas about cute things from felt too.
Hopefully I'll have some new additions for the shop soon :-)
Hope you have a great Friday,

Just rainy days




The weather change was quite sudden, Sunday it was sunny and then Monday there was thunder and rain. It's raining today as well, perfect weather for a good book or a good movie :-)
Hope you are having a wonderful week,
Aleka
