I think I bought this mostly because the little archer makes me think of Henry Darger illustrations
A few things we brought home from Chicago and a few things that were waiting in the mail when we got back: Antoine Doinel tote (and yes, I have too many tote bags, but Antoine Doinel is one of my favourite movie characters of all time), pretty Liberty for Target journal from Diana (thank you!), Gemma Correll's Everybody's Book of Kittens, Japanese notebook from Tara, MMMG notebook from Penelope's
An embroidery I started working on over a year ago (!!) and have yet to finish. The rectangle is guarding the area where a bowtie will go, once I'm done the fluff.
iris, Trace, kathryn, Alysha: Thank you!
sophie: Yes, definitely try it! There are so many possibilities.
Kate: Thanks! Yeah, I drop cameras even with the straps on so I don't really trust myself with no straps. My digital camera lens has a cracked UV filter on it (the crack is on the side and doesn't affect the picture) -- can't imagine how bummed I would have been if I had cracked the lens itself that time I dropped my camera on cobblestones. Cat photos forever!
kater: I'm thinking about it! I just ordered a lot of old camera straps off eBay -- I'll have to see what's in there!
Elizabeth Johnson: Thank you! I'm hoping to make more, although I'm sure you could make one yourself as well!
danielle and dinosaur toes: Thank you! Haha, it really only took five minutes. It was so easy. Just a few straight lines on the sewing machine.
Hello Lindello: Thanks! It's always nice to have something a little to your own taste, I think.
karyn: Thanks for the inspiration! The hardware is amazing. I wouldn't even want to attempt to replicate it! I can't wait to see what you come up with, if you do!
sew nancy: Thanks! Well, maybe I'll have to make some more.
My Bat Lightning Heart: Oh, please do! I've been watching other people with blogs learn more and more about photography, acquiring better cameras, etc., and it's pretty fascinating.
jackie: So weird. I don't moderate my comments and I have yet to delete any. I don't get it! But I'm glad you got your answer and I hope it was helfpul. I'm glad you like the strap!
Kempt: Oh, how nice! What a story.
