Traveller, there are no paths...


...paths are made by walking. So sayeth Antonio Machado.


This past week has been a bit of a blur, haven't had much time to sit in front of a hot needle and thread at all! But what I have done is very exciting- a breakthrough in construction methods to top them all. Here's a (badly-photographed) sneak-peak:

What's most exciting to me about it is not only is it what I've been looking for, but it also manages to link my faerycraft and 'proper' craft in a way that makes them both 'mine'. Before now I've had trouble with the distance between them and it's hampered things.


I like making what I otherwise do, it's cathartic in a way- well it's art, and you're always plumbing the depths of the psyche when you do it. Faerycraft for me is a bit of a holiday from the brain- it's a chance for me to relax and just make something beautiful without thinking too hard about it.

In view of this, I think I've decided- I'm going to have a faery shop on Etsy.
