Blog of a veggie lady who can't stay in one place for too long, loves to dumpster dive, loves to craft and can rant about feminism for hours! Just little notes and photos from my travels and the qwirky, fun, arty and ridiculous things I've seen! (and things I've found in bins.)
Some 30 Rock themed stitching I’ve been doing =]
Today to avoid being bored at work I stitched some Destiny’s Child lyrics! It’s the first bit of hand embroidery I’ve done in ages, so it ain’t great! I’m gonna do a load more of these, DC were pretty empowering to me as a young teen, and listening back to them now there’s a lot of good messages, but also some just dreadful ones (ie Nasty Girl, which is basically a song FULL of slut shaming.) so I want to do a kind of “SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!” embroider lot of art pieces. It now sits nestled between my zines!
A shout out of love for one of my favourite craft makers, Love From Hetty and Dave. LFH&D is a beautiful shop in Pokesdown (near Bournemouth, a haven of gorgeous cafes, hip shops and craft shops, and charity shops!) run by one very very talented lady. Months ago I got this gorgeous handmade collar from the shop, and my parents have got me both an embroidered brooch and this utterly gorgeous bag for my birthday. I love them so much and can’t wait to strut into work next week with my new snazzy bag!!! Apparently my Mum’s been in the shop so much lately that the owner recognises her!
