Another Love Bird
As my proper drawing and art supplies are right at the bottom of a 3 meter high stack of boxes and my scanner hasn't been found yet there is no progress on my Pattern making activities. Maybe if I started unpacking boxes and stopped blogging (read: moaning) about all the things I can't find the problem would soon be solved. I did find the Art Deco Polar Bear and the Garlic press by the way. Anyway last night I started a little project to keep my hands busy. It's another awesome Sublime Stitching pattern (by Carson Ellis this time) which I transferred on an old T-shirt. The T-shirt had a stain so I was going to throw it out but I thought why not try to embroider it and make it The Most Awesome T-shirt Ever! It's quite difficult to embroider on this fabric (even with stabliser) so I only use a simple back stitch here. The banner says Love in Russian by the way. At least that's what Amy told me and I totally believe her of course! Check out her lovely version of this pattern!
