i have extreme ADD when it comes to projects- i'll have four hundred bazillion UFOs of knitting laying around at one time.
this tiny piece took me forever- actually, i'm sure if i sat down and stayed focused, it would have took me a weekend or two, but no- it's more like four or five keys a day every couple of weeks if i felt like it or knew where it was hiding. . overall, it took me and my lethally short attention span a good three months to complete- a sign i should use bigger count adia fabric. lol
i made it for a friend who's been having a rough time lately- i decided to sit down and gather up all my attention and finish it so it'd be done in time for her moving into her new house.
she's a pianist, and loves it, so i'll use the unavoidable cheesy remark all pianist use for mushy labors of love. "you hold the keys to my heart!"
oh yeah, i totally see big cheesy smile in my near future
on a pile of origami roses!(didn't set it up for the photo and take a million shots, i swear! -shifty eyes-)
and on my carpet! (if you look very closely, you can see the horribly botched one stitch high lettering that made up as stitching and i hope no one else can read- it says "KATRINA XOXO", a lucky eleven space fit, though i'm starting to think i should have put a different four letter word/symbol now, whoops. if you can't make it out, the orchid colored floss doesn't show up like it does in person. all i can see are the warm violet ones)
tell me what you think- i hope to make my next project a little less tedious, this almost made me go NUTS!
