attempts in embroidery.

Look who jumped on the blog bandwagon!  I’m going to try to post as often as possible with what I’ve been up to.

Earlier this summer, half inspired by Robyn Touchie and half inspired by my lame job making me never want to stand up again, I finally took up embroidery. I taught myself by looking at the photos on Martha Stewart’s website and not reading any of the instructions. This is not a good way to learn anything.

I used this as inspiration for what would be a very, very belated birthday gift to my sister katie. The highlight of reading these books was the predictions on the year 2000. Anywho… here are the finished designs, they are not yet throw pillows like I’ve planned for them but they soon will be. The back will be this plaid fabric I got from a skirt in a thrift store on Hollis for $3!
