the sum is as great as the parts
what’s up guys? it’s been way too long since i’ve made the rounds and visited my friends in cyber space. but space is the place that never rests and i indulged in some surfing today for a look at what everyone’s been up to. the abundance of beauty and sheer creativity is mind boggling. there’s so much out there on every level that it’s hard to focus in on any one topic. but i’m going force myself to reign it in so i rolled the dice and it’s (dromroll)….embroidery!
i don’t know why it’s intriguing me but it’s just so sweet, simple and expressive. it’s one of those hobbies that’s evolved over the centuries and today’s styles are super simple; anything from a tracing to complete free flow. hope you enjoy these sweet creations!
i see these pretty threads and ribbons at all the markets and always wished i could do something with them besides display and admire. my mom and aunt once embroidered the hem of my jeans with flowers and butterflies and strawberries on the back pockets. i think they even stuffed the berries with a little foam but it’s hard to remember cause i was only about 8. still i remember them vividly. if you’ve got the knack you could be making lifetime memories for someone. stitch on!
