Men from mars, women from...

This weekend provided a little taste of spring here in Norway and I decided to use the opportunity to get some pictures taken in proper light. So finally I'm able to show you the rest of my freehand machine embroidered purses. The plan is to add them to my shop this week.



I spend a lot of time changing the color of the thread when I'm working on this project. That’s why I sew two of each motif at once, so that I feel a little efficient.



The bulldogs’twin brother was actually the first thing I sold on the spring market a couple of weeks ago. A man came over and said: "Is that supposed to be a bulldog?" and as the woman I am, I started over analyzing his tone of voice and reading between the lines (It’s not so out of proportion that you need to criticize... try to sew your own you person you...) before answering a quiet yes... The man: Ok, in that case I'll need to have it. And that was it... He was just a man of few words and had no hidden agenda what so ever.



The episode made me think and I have decided that this years` goal is to be more confident in myself and the work that I do so that I don’t worry about invisible critique from people that I don’t know. Because those that compare handmade with mass-produced products from the Far East is not in my target group anyway.
