WIP and a Bright Idea


She is a doll that I will hopefully have done by Baz Biz. I drew up 4 or 5 different designs earlier this week and she is the one I decided to embroider first. Embroidery is my favorite craft. It knocked crochet of its crafty throne. I think I like it so much because a little embroidery makes even the simplest (or crappiest) of drawings look sweet. Lord knows I am not much of a drawer (is that a word? doubtful) but when I embroider up one of my chicken scratchings it just looks so special.
I have also been saving the kids drawings with the hopes of embroidering some of them. I think it will be a cool way to incorporate peices of them and me into cool artwork for the house. Once I finish Lola here, I'll get started on some of monkey's works of art.

I love Lola in in her kerchief and pearls!! Embroidery is fun and you are too a drawer ( a person who draws). Well

A drawer is a shallow, rectangular container, often made of wood, that slides into a cabinet. You, my dear, are an artist! ;)
