I’m going on a mini vacation this weekend. We leave Friday, and I have been getting things together all week.
Of course, there’s the obvious – clothes, toiletries, and camera, but I’m most excited about the souvenir that I will be making while I’m gone. How can I make a souvenir? Well…
As you know, I’ve dabbled in needle point/ embroidery a bit. This trip I’m going on will involve a lot of driving time, and there’s even a possibility of some downtime while we are at our destination. Since I can embroider while having a conversation, I decided I would draw, and then create a new piece of wall decor to commemorate our little trip. Last week, I sketched up my design. Last Saturday I drew it on my fabric, stretched it onto my hoop, and chose my threads. Monday, I picked up a new pair of scissors to replace the ones I lost at my dad’s house. I have my needles all packed, and everything is ready to go.
Don’t worry, I will post it here as soon as I finish it. I can’t wait.
