Crescent Rolls with Brie filling

Yesterday before I cooked the Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, we went to Len’s Mill Store. I picked up supplies for my friend’s baby mobile which I will post about tomorrow when I start on it. I bought a pretty fat quarters package to use and two wooden embroidery hoops (one 10″ and one 12″).  I have two weeks to get it done. Wish me luck! I’ll start blogging about this tomorrow.

I also bought 3 more additional 12″ hoops for me and one 14″ hoop. I’ve decided to limit the circular projects to five (12″) and one 14.” The rest will be in canvas. To give you a sense of scale, Little Red is a 12″ piece.

This is what I’m hoping to accomplish with the hoops/canvases in late 2011 into 2012:

a)  Dorothy – 12″ (underway)

b)  Snow White – 12″

c)  Sleeping Beauty – 12″

d)  Midsummer Night’s Dream – 12″

e) Snow Queen – 12″

f) Twelve Dancing Princesses – 14″

g) Hansel and Gretel – Wood Canvas

h) Alice’s Tea Party – Wood Canvas

i) The Magical Fish – Wood Canvas

j) Three Ravens – Wood Canvas

I have Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and the Three Raven’s  concept/composition worked out in my head. It’s all a matter of how much time I will have to get these accomplished. There will be mini projects I want to sell on Etsy in between. I also want to schedule in writing as well as doll-related projects.

I am also hoping to have pieces for sale in my Etsy shop soon. Little Mermaid will be the first for sale. She’ll be a bit pricey since her framing will be included. I also will do smaller projects in between that will just be sold in a hoop. These large projects are meant to be entered into the Fair next year and also help me build enough of a portfolio to get into a gallery or do my own solo exhibition.
