A stitch in time
When I first stumbled upon the idea of embroidering your child’s artwork (discovered over at UCreate), I was impressed.
But, clearly, I don’t have any childrens’ artwork to stitch just yet. So I saved it in my “Inspiration” folder — if you don’t have one, you must make one — so I could give it a whirl in a few years.
I was browsing around on TwinStitchers.
Their motto is “A great stitcher once said ‘It’s just like coloring with a needle and thread.'”
So true! And yet — why haven’t I thought of it before?
TwinStitchers makes gorgeous stitched artwork, like this family on a swingset. I have done some embroidery, but only ever words — and the occassional heart or flower.
The idea of drawing an entire scene onto a piece of fabric and then “colouring” it is too perfect. I can’t wait!
I am so
making an embroidered family portrait for my mom!P.P.S.
And one of Little Dog, to have above her food dishes!P.P.P.S.
And one of me and Darling Husband on our wedding day!P.P.P.P.S.
… I really must shut off this burst of inspiration and get back to work.
