Have Patience…

I was able to finish the Kindness badge since I last posted about my latest embroidery project.

I also managed to get some in-progress shots of the Patience badge.

It’s growing!

Almost finished the border…

…and my thread ended here. So close, yet so far.

Patience prevailed, and both of these badges are now finished! I love how colourful the designs are, it’s very pleasing to the eye. Since taking these pictures, I’ve also begun the Creativity badge, which has a similarly bright colour scheme.

Anyways, see ya!

Is This a Bit Cheesy?

At the moment, I’m slowly making containers for all the food that came from making the burgers.

As you can see, I just finished the cheese container.

As far as we know, there are no mice in Sarah’s apartment, but that may change…

If I could have made it with clear plastic, I would have, but I wasn’t sure how that would translate in something so small.

I plan on making an entire lettuce next, to store the lettuce leaves in. Then perhaps a can of tomato slices, and something for the meat patties.

Anyways, see ya!

The Brewer

Most cafes I’ve been to have some sort of machine that makes  – or brews – the drinks, so I made one for the Three Broomsticks.

It’s quite simple, as it’s a few pieces of paper rolled around a whiteboard marker with some cardboard and beads glued on.

The spout is made of beads glued together and the conical bead was painted, as I believe it was originally pink.

It looks quite good on the counter with a few stacks of cups beside, don’t you think? I’m still working on designs for some colourful artwork for the walls. I was thinking of embroidering a few designs, and perhaps incorporating some crochet somehow.

Anyways, see ya!

Project Roundup

My main project at the moment is four embroidered patches, three that are from Mollie Makes.

The Mollie Makes ones are inspired by badges you’d get at Girl Guides or something similar, but these ones have qualities like Patience…

,,,Kindness and Creativity, which I haven’t started yet.

The border is entirely satin stitch, and definitely takes a while to do.

The picture below is where I am at now, you can see I still need to do the border for Patience in the corner.

My other project at the moment is a little box for the sliced cheese from the burgers. It will be covered in white paper, then I’ll make up a logo for the cheese and either draw or paint it on.

Anyways, see ya!
