#Indie handmade business, husband & wife team. Him - #CrossStitch. Her - hand #embroidery. Them - #handmade love.

#Mandala progress. A lot of people tell me they wish they could draw mandalas. Each one is individual and personal, but there is a basic process for starting them. Would a tutorial help? #wip #drawing

I want to do more #mandala #embroidery. This is what brainstorming looks like. #wip #drawing #sketchbook

It is so cool to watch David turn my artwork into stitches! #CrossStitch #wip #witch #Halloween #TeamWork #puntodecruz

#Hooping practice during a break in the rain. I made two big mistakes here. If you don’t see them (or they don’t look big) remember you feel clumsier than you look. Purple #PolyPro from Jess Hoops - etsy.com/shop/JessHoops. #hoopersofinstagram #curvyhoopers #hooplove #effyourbeautystandards

Made some time for art therapy last night. Recent rain has caused some frustrating arthritis days, and the #drawing was peaceful and soothing. #hamsa #om #latergram

Measuring and cutting fabric, drawing design and pinning in place to start my contribution to the Voices of #PTSD #quilt. Check craftivism.com if you’re interested in learning about the project. #embroidery

All of Toni from @littlehouseofcrafting’s #buttons and #magnets are awesome, and you really can’t go wrong with #Science! (littlehousecrafting.storenvy.com)

I’d say we’ll be sorry we didn’t keep #MissVelociYAPtor off the bed with her treat, but blankets can be washed and a happy #dog is worth a load of laundry. 🐶

3 inch canvas #drawing finished today! Mortimer says he wants to be the curator if we ever start a tiny art gallery. #zentangle
