N+S Wedding Commission

I got just about the perfect email the other week.

N & S hand embroidered wedding hoop - Misericordia 2015

It was from a lady that had seen my work at Out of the Blue Arts Market in December and talked to me about her sister’s wedding. She wanted me to make a piece based on the wedding invitation, and was very organised in sending me some photos of the invitation to look at.

It was nice to be able to work directly from something the couple had designed themselves, and being the font geek I am, I had to modify one of the fonts to match the rather unusual Western/Art Nouveau font used on the invitation (even though the really interesting letters don’t appear in the hoop text).

I also got to use a new 20cm sized hoop, which is nice and big for pieces with a lot of detail or that need some space around different elements.

I want to start to tweak my craft fair stands to show more of the commissioning process. Given the other constraints on my time, I need to start to concentrate on that part of my work. Do you think I should recreate the mess on the table next to my side of the sofa?

Coming Over All Matrimonial

I love a wedding, do you?

Mr & Mrs hand embroidered hoop - Misericordia 2014

I’ve got a few friends’ weddings coming up and they’ve made me feel all nostalgic for the excitement and fevered planning that went into our wedding.

(Although I must admit, I find great relief in being well through that stage. It was fun while it lasted, but matronhood suits me quite well.)

I have a variety of visions for these pieces, ranging from a gift for the work colleague who you wish well but don’t fancy buying a lone dinner plate off the uninspiring gift registry to a rather sweet bridesmaid’s gift to an ironic gift for the couple who are passionately devoted to their cohabitative state.

I must apologise for the rather traditional wording, I’m desperately awaiting my first Dr & Mr or Ms & Ms, so please get commissioning!
