I've been working on a few embroidery projects lately. I've loved this tote design since the first time I saw it at Sublime Stitching.
My dad used to call me "Medusa" when I was growing up (on account of my
untameable curly hair) and for some reason this design reminded me of
that...Medusa...but pretty. Now that I think about it, it is a bit
symbolic, I guess. Growing up I hated my curly hair; I would have done
anything to have hair like the "other girls". But now, I realize that
it's very much a part of who I am. In fact, I think many of my friends
would say it's my best physical asset. It's still a bit unruly,
but I've accepted it, and even come to love it. Anyway, apparently, this
design really spoke to me, and I'm really enjoying stitching it. The
design is perfect for showcasing a variety of stitches & colors.
And a few more baby projects. Simple cloth diaper burp cloths. These stitch up really quick (the truck isn't done yet) & that little dinosaur has stolen my heart. I want to stitch him on everything. The car & truck designs are from the Sublime Stitching book I got awhile back; the dinosaur is a clip art image I found online.
