I mentioned that I needed embroidery floss for a project. This is still a little ways down my list but I bought a pattern to make an embroidery wall hanging of David Bowie from his Ziggy Stardust era. Here's what the finished product looks like from designer Heidi Hengel-Nieling on her blog Speckless:
|Not your grandma's embroidery!|
Heidi also sells the pattern for this project on her Etsy site. You can purchase this and other items here. I purchased the pattern a few months ago but finally realized when I came across that package of embroidery thread that it was time to start moving. I already have a wood 9 inch embroidery hoop I can use. I'm not sure about learning to make the Shisha mirrored parts but I may as well give it the old college try. I have to brush up on the different embroidery stitches but, thanks to the Internet, that won't be hard to do. As for colors, I'll probably stick pretty close to the ones Heidi used. Who knows what may overtake me when I finally pierce the fabric with my needle.
Below is a pic of the items we all purchased. As usual, we had treats afterward and caught up on our activities from the past week. Until next time...
