lots of floss (preview)

Embroidery floss.

I have a lot of it that I have amassed over the past 3 years or so. That's since I decided I should start embroidering again. I started one overly complicated "project" that is less than half done (yes, over years), but in between I've been making smaller stuff. It's very time consuming, but it's somehow less strenuous than most other crafts I've encountered.

So, this is the preview for my inventory at the Bizarre Market's Holiday Market, at Chop Suey Books (v1), opening this Saturday evening and available for shopping through December 24th. It's THE place for shopping this December. I'll have other random things, and I'm sure others will have even more randomer random other things. There will be something for all.

I only made three embroideries because they took a very long time and also they kind of morphed into whatever they wanted because I did not draw out anything before hand. And in such cases things don't always turn out as planned... sometimes you have to just let the floss do what it wants to do...

Since this is a preview so I will not show the "items" in their entirety right now. You'll have to go to the shop to check them out.

In other news, I thought of something I want to make with the theme of "curry rice." That will be next, maybe.
