Just in the nick of time! I call this piece "Current Comfort". Having a rough time in life lately, and having the tv on in the background while I work or embroider or whatever is a calming presence. It's my first attempt at these lovely wreaths that are so popular... it's okay. A little skimpy perhaps, but I'm glad I finished it.

Joining in with the rest of you f*ckers.  Grin My all white attempt, only truly visible in the dark.

L is for Leo! My initial and zodiac sign. Smiley A fun project to get more familiar with metallic thread and patterned couching. It's about 5" x 7".

Summer celebrations!

Summer is crazy, my work, the husband's work, soccer, and 3 out of 4 family birthdays. Typically, any embroidery projects taken on need to be simple and quick. Here they are, birthday party favors, for my son's birthday. I made perler bead bases and then cross stitched the letters. Then I added a felt back and a pin. Donesies!

So, Pam England has a book called "Laborinth of Birth" which is about creating a map of what you'd like childbirth and labor to be. It even stretches into the child's first year. You create it and use it to meditate over the birth and growth process. After a less than ideal first birth situation, with my second I was really anxious to find something that could help keep me centered and calm. So, I created a laborinth the best way I knew how- embroidery! I started with the maze and then added the other elements- the brambles around the outside were doodles my oldest son did and my husband drew some of the things as well (I wanted the whole family included)





I poured a lot of hopes and dreams into this and whether it helped or not, my second birth experience was much smoother.

Thank you so much! Yes, I started with the maze, then added different elements. The tree represents the seasons and the vines/brambles around the edge were doodles that my oldest drew because I wanted to include him in the process too. A lot of work, but so much fun!

Not to toot my own horn, but I really don't have a favorite pattern designer besides myself. I love the patterns that I see people following, but I prefer to draw something up or use a picture I've taken or whatever.

This project was a fun one! It's called a Laborinth- the journey through pregnancy, birth and your child's first year. Only a little behind on it as my youngest is nearing 4, but close enough. There's so much symbolism an meaning (to me) in this piece. I'm thinking of turning it into a pillow possibly.
