1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / buster bluth and the friendly lamb on: February 17, 2009 12:59:41 PM
recently my bf was in the hospital for a week receiving iv antibiotics. since i can't possibly exist without him(!), i spent as much time with him as possible... mostly watching him sleep. i decided i needed to find something to do. this is what i found!!



i have been wanting to try embroidery forever and found some clearance tea towels at target. i could have used any pattern (i bought several from sublime stitching) but i guess i was feel nostalgic because i chose this. i used transfer paper and traced the image onto an ironed and starched tea towel and just went for it. i framed it this weekend and it's now hanging in my office. i hope you like it as much as i do!

my gift is for the newly born baby of a friend. i still have my first teddy bear. and while it wasn't my best, it's remained the most precious reminder of my childhood. it would be my honor to have a "baby" i made, serve as the same sort of reminder of childhood. that is the inspiration for my attempt at sewing. secondly, if it's going to be worthy of such stamp of approval, it better be mean something, right? so, i've tried to combine the simplicity of everyday items, my unprofessional sewing skills, the imagination of color, pattern, ect! with the durability required for the journey. i heard a quote that the best thing about getting older is that you never lose the ages you've been. my apologies to my ignorance of the author, but it's the most beautiful thing this dorky grrl has ever heard. so, here's my giraffe, as homemade as it is. made of socks, thread, stuffing and heart. totally freehand. totally handmade. thank you for being a part of it! it's fun to make art!
