I have a deep appreciation for (and admiration of) fiber art and embroidery. I've got an entire Pinterest board dedicated to the genre actually.
To be honest, I wish I did more of it myself.
As it stands, I don't really know how to do a whole lot of different hand stitches. Every time a project calls for a french knot, for instance, I have to google up some instructions and figure it out all over again. That info just does not stick in my brain for life. I just don't use it enough. The info, not the ole noggin. ;)
A week or 2 ago, there was a major sale going on at the big J - - and I had a coupon for some crazy high percentage off. Burning a hole in my pocket. I tell you what, they know what they're doing when they send you those coupons in the mail . . . it is almost impossible not to figure on something you need that you could use with that coupon, you know?
Anyway, Little Miss and I had a little mom and daughter day out together and that means not only does she get to do what she wants (lunch and custard at Culver's), but I get to do what I want as well (stop in the fabric store). I'm not big on kits so much, but I saw this sweet little thing and thought . . . maybe this will get my juices flowing on doing more embroidery and fiber art.
I haven't decided where this little sampler will live . . . perhaps if I get a gallery wall going in the girls' room, I'll add this to it. Might also be nice elsewhere. Once I frame it I'll have to audition a few spots.
Anyone else honing in on any new skills?
