I have been doing some binding on a secret project...
and have embarked on an embroidery project.
Now, it's kind of manly, but I have a new vision for it.
It's Hook Line and Sinker by Crabapple Hill Studios.
I plan on making it girlie. The colors in the collage
are my favorite kind of palate. So, hopefully I can pull it
off and do so without making the guys in my family
grumble too much!
Can you see my vision? The colors in the embroidery could easily
work with pastel blocks.
I have plans to change the name from Blue Lake to (my local) Bass Lake.
Also, beer bottles... will be root beer!
Maybe that creel should be pink?
In order to make sure I stay on track...
I have 2 reasons to give me incentive.
1. I have a friend now working on the embroidery with me.
(the same one who did Winter Wonderland with me)
(um, however, I confess... she finished and I did not)
2. I have been put on the waiting list for a Crabapple Hill retreat...
Have you seen the photo albums of Meg's retreats?
They just look like too much fun!
And they must be because the retreats fill up
within hours of registration.
The reason why I need those two incentives is:
1. I lose focus on embroidery.
2. It's probably going to take me that long to finish!
I have a growing collection of Cosmo floss and I have acquired
a lot of DMC floss... the DMC is wound on clothespins.
I wanted to do something a little bit different with the Cosmo floss.
I have been gathering ideas.
The plastic cards are just too boring.
Stay tuned to see what I come up with!
Now the question is...
who won the patterns from Monday's post?
The randomly chosen number was 18...
Kimberly from my brown bag studio!
