and i like it
i have been teaching myself how to embroider. No. I'll be honest. I've been TRYING to learn to embroider via this website(Rhi this is for you sweetness) and i have successfully become addicted to it.
The flowers came from this Anthro apron (it was on SALE!). Surely you are allowed to cut up Anthro aprons if they are on sale?! Right? :) I have an idea of what I want to do with these beauties but the mind is still brewing. Ideas ideas ideas. Anyone?
So Handsome and I applied for our library card (i am a moocher so i made him apply for one-ha!) And we came out with How-To-Embroider books. Pretty spiffy except I'm not a reader. I learn from watching. Especially technical stuff like embroidery. So check out the above site. I've spent lots of hours on there with my laptop open and just chillin' on my bed. Good times.
My main inspiration to want to learn how to embroider came from this beautiful purse I purchased in Cambodia. I LOVED the markets there. Very visually stimulating with bright colors and textures. Well, it was love at first sight. I knew this baby was coming home with me. :)
Alrighty...the business Move FORWARD book techniques
Not sure really how to approach this. Still trying to figure out how to put it down on paper so that it makes sense. Know what i mean? I keep starting and just going off on tangents. I feel like this needs to be a video tutorial. And from what I have now I feel like I'm teaching a class. LOTS of info and step by step techniques. Sigh. So I'll take time to think about this further. I AM working to edit it down so that it makes sense (my editor: Lil' Sis & producer: Lil' Brother & camera man: Mr.Hot Handsome). There are so many techniques in this book especially since half is digi and half is paper art. I will un-complicate this. I will show you. It just might have to be a class. So shoot me an email if you are interested. If there is enough interest. I will let JJ know and teach it along with SIStv.
