by HEIDI EMMETT I have so many irons in the fire so to speak with nothing finished yet. I’m going to show one thing in progress to whet your appetite to come back for the finished product. But FIRST, a word from our sponsor, Designs by Heidi. I am pleased to announce that I am working on bringing all my “Art to Wear” sewing patterns into PDF/DIGITAL formatting to my Etsy shop, DESIGNS BY HEIDI EMMETT Soon, within this next week there will be 2 DIFFERENT ways to purchase my patterns on my Etsy shop. “Hard Copy” (everything packed in a plastic sleeve) is there NOW, or PDF/Digital.
Coming soon to my Etsy store, Designs by Heidi Emmett, A CHOICE!! Hard copy sewing patterns, or, PDF/Digital format (you print them up on your own printer).
Today, Jan 17th, 2020 is Riley’s 2nd week in his forever home. What a good boy he is becoming.
We weren’t sure if we would make the 2 week mark. Constant prayers (prayer REALLY works), love, and treats. Isn’t he such a handsome guy? Found out last week that it is quite possible that he has spent a year of his life in a shelter (passed around). So EVERYTHING is new to him. Oh dear, I think I already said this last week. Sorry if I did, life around here is so upside down right now. I’m thrilled to be able to type this blog post, today, the day it’s due.
Here is a P.I.P. (project in progress) I wanted you to see. Sort of a “Boro” type thing. Learning so much. These pieces are all from men’s shirts.
I can’t wait to show you my step by step and what I learned so that you too can do this, MUCH easier than I did. I thought, “throw some pieces down, embroider, done.” Not true.
Cruising through Pinterest (please follow me there, type in DesignsbyHeidiEmmett) one morning and up came this tote. I really like the simplicity of this piece. A tote bag from my Men’s shirts, similar to this one, or a pillow. We’ll see. This tote is available from:
Riley and his FIRST tastes of Snow (literally, biting, running, biting, giddy running, biting, biting the snow) He loved being in it, eating it, chasing snow balls.
All that running around in the snow, and Riley needs a break. He is wearing a “light lead” as training (love, treats,praise) goes on all day, every day. Two weeks and we are TRULY seeing progress. Albeit s-l-o-w-l-y but that’s what we want they say.
Some how this quote suddenly got really small. Oh well. This is truly me. Ask my husband. Some boxes and their inserts are amazingly designed. Did you know that you can get a degree in packaging design. Or so I have heard. Yikes, I need to get out more. Can’t wait to take Riley to Doggie Day Care. He NEEDS to be with his new “buds.” And we need a break. Come on sunshine, where are you! Find 15 minutes a day for your next creative project. I’m looking for my 15 min. Uh oh, there’s the whine for “I need to go out NOW!” 15 min. will have to wait. Until next week, Hugs from Heidi
