I have been very slack at updating my projects, so here is one I finished last Christmas while I go figure out what else I've done lately :p

Project bag for my mother, with the stitching sewn on as a pocket. The pink floral fabric matches a pincushion I made her previously, and by coincidence also matches her travel sewing rolly kit.

Bonus - a shell plaque made from dyed beach shells, coral and fish scales. My great grandma used to make and sell these during the depression, so Grandma was teaching my mother and I what she could remember of them.

My attempt:

Some old ones that have not survived so well:

Ok so it has been a bit longer than I thought since my last update, so here are some of the smaller finishes while I round up the larger projects!

A bookmark I made for my fiance for valentines day:

I've started to stitch the art in games - Stardew has some great paintings and maps scattered through the town! If anyone knows any games that are particularly good for their in game artworks I'd love to take a look.

I've been doing a bunch of Christmas decorations - pretty sure I have some more around somewhere, they may make an appearance when december rolls around and I dig out the decorations box

The crochet is not forgotten - I've started making some tasty looking sushi and dumplings because why not!

More updates will come as I find where everything got to since I last updated :P

They all look awesome, but I have to say my favourite batch is the tiny artworks. They're super cute! I know I've seen something similar in another game, I'll try to remember what it was!
