New Thor, Sif & Thor’s Hammer Sew On Patches

Last week I listed 3 new Norse themed patches. I made my first God/Goddess Patches. I’m going to finish off the Norse Pantheon first before moving onto others unless someone specifically orders a particular one. I’m also working on the Thor patch but in only Black & White.

I Have Orientation Tonight

Tonight I have Orientation for the teaching program I’m starting in. It’s been over 2 years since I last graduated so I’m both excited and nervous about going back. Now to finish up some paperwork!

Home Repair Woes

When it rains it pours right? Water is definitely the correct analogy in this case. We just learned a few weeks ago that the wax seal in the kids bathroom had cracked and was leaking. We don’t know when it started but the problem didn’t become evident until after Lil’ R became potty trained and that toilet was in regular use. We’re now going through the hassle of the insurance adjuster, and a contractor to get the repairs done. It isn’t just that bathroom that is bad though, it leaked into our kitchen and caused damage to some of the cabinets.
In some ways it’s a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing is we should get our cabinets in the kitchen and that bathroom redone, along with that bathroom floor for the cost of our deductible. Bad thing that right now I really didn’t want to spend as much as our deductible on something like this.

Upcoming Tutorial

I have 2 different ideas for on cute little sheep that I want to make tutorials of. I plan to have one out for Imbolc, and the other may appear randomly through the Spring. Lets hope classes don’t get in the way so I can get it done asap.

That’s the nut shell this week. I’m going to try to get some pictures of the house as it’s taken a part soon.

  1. Do you make more than one of each patch? Do you use a machine or hand sew? They are so detailed!

    1. Joy, thank you. They are machine stitched so once I have created the initial design I can make as many as I desired.
