Really, the running joke among those who know me has been about my embroidery abilities--or lack thereof! I've been taking Gran's embroidery class for the past year and I'm not sure anyone's seen me complete anything--mostly, I'm really good at BUYING stuff like patterns, floss, needles, etc. But now I finally finished something--this Mother's Day tea towel, which is a free design from Bird Brain Designs--click HERE if you'd like to make it too. (I enlarged mine a bit on a photocopier.) Gran and I went to a sewing and craft show back in March and met the ladies of Bird Brain Designs--they were so much fun to chat with!
I'm really not supposed to be doing much hand stitching. The physical therapist told me I could try it and see if it bothered my hands, and it seems okay for short periods, so that's what I've limited myself to--short periods every now and then. I've been working on this project for about three weeks now.
Of course, isn't that just like me? Here I haven't done hardly any stitching for the past year until now, when I know I shouldn't be doing much, and THEN I finish a project! Still, it's nice to get something made, isn't it? Maybe I WILL get Hocuspocusville done someday!
