A little while ago, I took Sharon Boggon’s Sumptuous Surface Embroidery class. I loved it. I absolutely loved it. I learned a ton in that class, and had a lot of fun working on my class projects, even if the umbrella girl didn’t turn out quite as I imagined she was going to. I chalk it up to learning, and there is very little that I like better than learning something new.
One of the few things I like better than learning something new is getting to apply that learning to a project you had in mind. Like this one:
It doesn’t look like much here, fresh off the hoop and sort of naked. But framed in a little frame painted in a coordinating colour?
I think it’s just lovely.
There’s just one problem… Now that I’ve finished it, I don’t want to give it away. I want it for myself.
I guess I’ll just have to make another one. Right after I finish the rest of my new baby gift making. But then there’s Thanksgiving, followed by Christmas craft making and gingerbread house making and gift wrapping and cookie eating…
I think I can pencil it in for sometime in June of 2018.
