Wedding dress is still on hold. Not the man, just the dress. I sometimes worry that folks look at me like this:
Anyway, I’ve been working on some new designs. They started out as something I was working on for a tote bag, that turned into more of a purse, that I’m still working on. Anyway, I came up with these…
I came up with these while I was sitting out on my porch one evening. The biggest moth I have ever seen landed on the wall beside me. I thought it was a bat at first, it was about 6 inches across. After some Googleing I found it was a cecropia moth, and that they are fairly rare in these parts. Strange fact: they don’t eat, in fact they don’t even have mouths, they’ve done all their eating as caterpillars.
I have been wanting to offer some digital downloads of my designs, so I did put these up in my Etsy store. Wow, there’s a lot of work involved there, beyond even the tweaking and testing of the designs. Making everything available in a variety of formats and sizes, as well as coming up with a decent description that covers all the bases takes some time. Now that I have the first ones roughed out, I’m hoping it will get easier down the line.
