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.
