Draw it! Tattoo it!

The Husband always says that if he can draw it then he can tattoo it, and given his drawings are pretty special then it goes without saying that his tattoos are mighty awesome too.

One recent customer tested that with a request for a tattoo of one of Lee’s fabulous Bic Biro skull drawings. As you all probably know Lee has a growing collection of skulls penned in Bic Biro destined for a coffee table book and which we have also printed onto our cool T-shirts and made into very unusual fabric. However, our lovely customer having a tattoo of one of the drawings … just absolutely class!!!

London calling…

Sometimes a mother and daughter just need a little quiet time together away from the hustle and bustle of life. Visiting The ThreadShed recently was a lovely Mum and her very gorgeous Daughter, both from London. They were holidaying in the area to celebrate a birthday and a graduation, and of course Pembrokeshire is the perfect place to cosy away, relax, celebrate, appreciate, and simply just breathe awhile.

For Mum and Daughter, getting all “arty farty” at The ThreadShed, Fresh East brought back lots of memories of them doing creative activities together through Daughter’s childhood too. We started with T-shirts, took a break for a scrummy ‘lunch with a view’ at our picturesque village pub ‘the Freshwater Inn,’ and moved to mugs in the afternoon. We explored lots of different creative ideas for their designs, but both Mum and Daughter were chuffed to bits with their final choices.

They were happy, funny, interesting, smiling people and it was a joy to spend a few hours with them both. I am so glad London came calling on this faraway town (village actually … but that didn’t work as well) 😄.

Digitising delight …

Now and again I enjoy playing with my posh embroidery machine. Up until now I’d only really used the built in designs or ones that had already been digitused for me. However, I decided to give the Sew Art Embroidery Digitiser a whirl on their free trial offer. I have 30 days to decide whether I’m going to purchase the full programme and during the 30 days I can enjoy digitising as many designs as I wish which I think is pretty damn good.

I started with a couple of very cool shirts for The Husband and his Oppo.

Quirky Wedding Card Art…

Art comes in many forms and perhaps surprisingly I create my own quirky, crafty art on wedding cards. I recently took a commission, from the aunt of a gorgeous couple, to make a very special and unique wedding card for them. The aunt sent me a photo of the bride and groom, and told me a little bit about them both, so I could try to capture their personality and style.

I hope they loved the final result – a truly quirky wedding card for someone special from someone special.

What do you think of the card and also these others that I created for some other special occasions?

Button Art …

I simply adore buttons. I have a shoebox filled with them. I think I inherited the button-loving gene from my clever, creative Mam as she always had a tin for buttons and a tin for zips (and yes of course I also have a tin for zips too). My buttons are all colour sorted, and some are beautiful, some are ordinary, some are vintage, and some are absolutely glorious. The Husband teases me a little about my button collection but I know he loves me and my quirky button loving ways.

The Husband didn’t need to prove his love as he does this every day in every way, but if I did need proof then he hit the jackpot with this wonderful, original, button art skull made from just some of my adorable button collection …

Truly no ThreadShed should be without a button skull ❤️
