I'm teaching myself embroidery. I've given it some half-hearted go's in the past, but I'm pretty excited about it this time.
I didn't realize just how much I would miss my sewing machine while I was traveling...I miss it like a I needed to find something creative to occupy my hands that doesn't require a lot of tools or accessories. So, thanks to I have a new hobby on my hands. I think it'll be fun to learn the stitches, and when to use what stitch. It'll be a challenge to think in a different way, and I'm hoping I can expand from just following the lines. But I'm pretty happy with my cute little tea towel and napkin so far. And I thought the Beach Babes images were particularly fitting for this time in my life.
