A Collaboration - From the Archive

This crafty lull seems like a perfect time to share some work from my past with you.  I know I'm all about knitting right now.  And most of you came to me because of my crochet tutorials and handbag pattern.  What may surprise you is that I lovelovelove embroidery.  LOVOOOVOOVOVOVVE.

Back in 2008, a former craft blogger Ruby Crowned Kinglet and I started a ... thing ... that we named A Collaboration.  Follow that link to read our correspondence leading up to the agreement to do a weekly project where my husband would pick words that she and I would interpret in embroidery.

I was very excited about the whole thing.  I loved Stephanie.  She and I had very similar senses of humor.  And the things she made, well, they blew me away.  I was dazzled to be a part of something with her .

It was amazing, but like many things on the internet (and in real life), it eventually fizzled out.  That was sad, but I still have some amazing embroidery to show for it.  I'll start posting it tomorrow.

You can see Stephanie's posted contributions to the project here, here, and here

Too bad Stephanie stopped blogging, she was interesting. I liked her eye for detail in her photos.
