This isn’t my project. I do love it so very much, though. It is my 2.5 year old daughter’s first embroidery project. I was inspired by Amanda Blake Soule’s book, The Creative Family to get a needle and embroidery floss and let her try her hand at sewing. We went to the store together and she picked out the colors, this redish orange and a green that she is currently working with. I think she made some nice color selections, though I am not sure if she conscientiously chose or just randomly grabbed. Either way, she did a nice job.
I should also note that I LOVE the book. Love, love, love. I enjoyed it so much in fact that I cried reading while I read and thought about raising my babies in a creative, encouraging and loving environment. What can I say, I’m a bit sappy when it comes to the kids.
At any rate, I thought this would be appropriate to include, even though it is not mine, since it sort of (really) makes me want to do some embroidery of my own. I haven’t done embroidery before, only a bit of cross stitch when I was younger, so it might be fun to try something new. I am always up for trying something new, in fact I need to stop reading other blogs because I have more projects lined up than I will ever be able to do. But, since this little blog is my own way to keep track of creative endeavours, my inspirations should probably be recorded as well.
