April 20, 2010

It's TCAP week at school and our schedule is all messed up.

I finished these purses last night and tried to take pictures right away, but the light was horrible. So, here they are. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

And here is another embroidery of a song lyric. This time it's from "Lorraine" by Rosie Thomas.

I've had a busy couple of days....long anyway. I am tired and in need of a nap :)

I went out yesterday with my friend Amanda and purchased a couple of frames for the embroideries I recently finished. The second is a lyric from Matthew Ryan, one of my favorite musicians, and he happens to live right here in Nashville.

I also got a hoop, painted it blue, and fixed this little guy up:

This afternoon, I went back to JoAnn's and bought a brand new sewing machine. I'm so excited, but haven't tried it out yet.

Time for that nap now. Have a great evening!

April 6, 2010

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon Chris Piascik's blog and was inspired to take some of my favorite song lyrics and make them look pretty. Here are a few examples from my "coloring book". They come from Aaron Sprinkle, Sunny Day Real Estate, Rosie Thomas, and Jaymay.

Then I thought it would look awesome to take one and do an embroidery. I think I was right.
