I like to embroider, and quilt, and do needlepointy-type things. There is something really satisfying about doing something stitch by stitch, eventually (and I do mean eventually) finishing. I find quite a bit of satisfaction in the few things I have done like this. This one above, is from Alicia Paulson and is available to purchase for $6 here. I transferred the pattern onto my fabric and started in on the A last night.
Sorry about the image hog that was the bow tie tutorial. I did not realize those were so big and then could not find a minute to fix it until now. Good little images.
We had some major trauma in our downstairs. We have very sensitive pipes and I flushed a wipe down the toilet while potty training Ulysses and what do you know? R came downstairs after my shower to find all the shower water had come up through the toilet. Yum. So, three crews later and our pipe has been saved from the wipe, the carpets have been removed and thrown out, part of the walls and baseboards have been thrown out, and we stayed at my moms house while they sprayed the whole thing with antimicrobial last night. Wow. One wipe, one shower, and presto–bye bye vacation and our cute little downstairs. Uly is camped out in the dining room in the meantime and I was in tears on Monday. We are all feeling better now, but still. I am trying to stay focused on these daisy chains. Small accomplishments, people.
