Oh my Goodness! I think I have found a new hobby and I am soooo excited. Wanna know what it is ?!?!? Hand Embroidery. This is something that I found after trying quilting, crotchet, and knitting. To this day I remember my Mom making the most amazing creations when she crotchet or knitted in the evening. I wanted to have this little tradition of sorts for my little Munchkins as well. They call it "needling" and love to see it go from a sketch on my paper to a finished project. The internet has provided instruction, patterns, and ideas for my projects. The first one that I completed was an idea taken from plaques that commemorate the year of your marriage with a Little Mochi twist. I love that this project forced me to explore sketching, which is something that scared me. I mean I can draw one awesome stick figure but to make a rendition of Hubby and I was daunting. I took my inspiration from kokeshi dolls and this is what I came up with.
So what do you think?!?! I have a new project in the works right now. It is one of the whole family and I can not wait to get it completed and framed. I will post it once it is complete.
Ja matta ne,
