I made a piece dedicated to my grand father and things that make me think of him - chickadees and honeysuckles, I thought they made a lovely image together too. The above photo is a bit blurry (yknow when your camera takes two pictures, one blurry and one crisp, and you accidentally delete the crisp one instead of the blurry? ITS ANNOYING RIGHT?)
You can see the details a little more here!
I'm pretty proud of myself for the first time embroidering, I mean there are parts of the fabric that are being pulled and stretched funny, and there are stitches overlapping and I ran out of room for the word 'Remember', but you know what? I poured my heart into this and I'm so happy with the outcome. I'm thinking of putting in a fabric backing (to hide the horrid back of the piece... sheesh I have a lot to learn!), and to add some opacity to the background, and then hanging it with a ribbon tied in a bow at the tightening part of the loop. And then I'm going to put it in my room in my new apartment! I move in August 1st guys..... how crazy is that? I'm so excited.
Hope you've all been having lovely weeks thus far! I work the absolute rest of the week, non stop. Yippee yay! But at least that means I get $$$ right? And I wouldn't be able to craft and make things if I didnt have $$ for supplies right? So it all works out in the end, right? ;)
