I have a copy of Haeckel's Art Forms from Nature, from Dover Press, sitting right beside my computer. I never would have thought to embroider any of the designs, but you have opened my eyes to the possibilities! You did an absolutely amazing job with this jellyfish- you captured the beauty of them without going overboard. I can't wait to see what else you do!
I work at a school, and there has been a box heaped with old keyboards just sitting in the media center. Yesterday, I asked what was going to happen to them, and explained my interest. I was told that I could take "as many as I wanted...please!"
Guess what all of my geeky guy friends are getting for Christmas this year?
To make it into a scarf, I wonder if it would work if you just didn't stuff it quite so much? It seems like it would need a little stuffing to give it definition, but not too much, or else you wouldn't be able to wrap it around your neck.
Where can you get this Joannes coupon-online or do you get an ad in the paper-I need to head back there for the doll needles (and probably more fabric and maybe some eyeballs if they have them).
I've signed up for their mailing list- snail mail and e-mail- and I get the coupons sent to me. I get sales flyers (with coupons) in the regular mail, and e-mail announcements and coupons. You might be able to snag a sales flyer at the store...might be able to grab a coupon that way!
Thanks! Joanne's has a 10% off your entire order coupon for this weekend, and when I was buying fabric (already on sale), I "shopped" for everything else I wanted to get. Now I'll add the doll sculpting needles and buttons. There is a curtain/home dec store around the corner, but I don't know if they do upholstery. I'll have to take a stroll down there...
