Embroidery - My New Muse

Thursday, April 08, 2010

It started with a small flirtation. The Jenny Hart book winked at me in the library. Embroidered Effects came home with me and there was no turning back.

The pages lured me with their candy colours and simple instructions. Before I knew it, I was working on a sampler. The Librarians felt my pain when someone else reserved it and I couldn’t renew it “just one more time”.

The sampler is almost finished and I’m eyeing up some new projects. I even managed to get the book back just for those last stitches.

My mum was quietly impressed. She’s and embroidery fan from way back. If I keep it up she might even let me near her Danish sewing books. For now, she’s passed me this.

It’s like a box of chocolates, only better.
