I decided to go 'off road' last week...and I had a blast. But..of course, my off road compared to someone else's is a little different. I stitched...off canvas! I found this little book of 100 embroidery stitches in my stash. I remember buying it at the five & dime in maybe middle school. It was a big deal to embroidery ones jeans back then.
There are a lot of young women popping into the shop to buy crewel wool to embroidery of late. Each visit brings back a flood of sweet memories. So...I pulled out some of my line drawings and found a sweet one that would work on an old cotton cardigan of mine. And like magic, I have a whole new sweater and have opened Pandora's box of threads, embroidery hoops [I had to go buy one!] and a million ideas.
