Happy Anniversary to me!

My husband and I got married 5 years ago today, and I still feel incredibly lucky. I guarantee that Rain's Obsessive Stitchery would not exist if I didn't have the support of a wonderful partner. Also, I can make pretty things, but it's his fault that they look pretty on the internet, and that my website, blog, banners and avatars look good.

So, because I know you've all been waiting impatiently to hear, I decided to work on altar cloths first. But only the spring and summer ones--I can't bear the thought of working on fall and winter things just yet. Right this minute, my embroidery machine is stitching away on a Green Man at the center of a Litha altar cloth.

That's all I really have to say for now. I'm working on putting up new listings over in my Celebrations store. I think that the next one should be this Wonderland towel set. Embroidery designs by Urban Threads.

Spring is coming!

Spring is coming! I keep telling myself this. It seems that Winter is going to have to be dragged out, kicking and screaminig the entire way, but that's OK. Spring will be here soon. The equinox is only a couple weeks away.

I've been doing what I can to bring on Spring. I have a whole stack of towels here with birds, flowers, and butterflies embroidered on them. I've been working on some suncatchers, and I have a bright new banner that'll be going up at sometime soon.

Here's a picture of one of the new towels. I'll be listing them for sale very soon.

I've picked up a couple of new events recently. There is a craft fair at Two Roads Cafe once a month, which is a great way to support local business and art. Pagan Packs has regular online faires, which are great opportunities to meet new people, play games to win prizes, and to support pagan businesses. Here is a list of upcoming events. The Pagan Coffee House is a social event only, and I'll have my wares available at all the others. Let me know if you need any more information about any of them.

Now I just need to figure out whether I want to work on tarot bags, altar cloths, bibs, or T-shirts next. Any suggestions?
