December Blog-o-sphere Topic: What are you hoping to accomplish in 2013?
|yes, i know Ewe is knitting|
and not embroidering, but
i went with what i had
Well, now that I've left my year of failing behind, I can say I have countless ideas swimming disjointedly around in my head of things I'd like to accomplish this year, both personal and pottery wise, but I'm not willing to share except for this one: I feel the need for a non-clay creative hobby, and I've had a nagging urge to embroider. I'm not sure where that's coming from except that my mom loved needlework, and I embroidered a few times from kits as a crafty kid and now in the last year sometimes this blog makes me swoon.
I also recently found these:
|The stitching on back of these looks great on one but less great|
on the other which makes me think Mom helped .
Maybe Mom helped a lot.
I was surprised to come across them and even more surprised I saved them. I embroidered these place mats in grade school (I think?) in 1970 something or another, and I believe they were adapted from a historical design for an American History project rather than for an art project. Anyways, if visions of embroidery have nagged me enough to talk about it here, it may be time to pick up the needle and floss and give it a go. Maybe I'll share here. We'll see.
