So I mentioned in my previous post that I seem to spend most of my free time not knitting...here's another reason why. I, my friends, have been having a fling with another craft, Embroidery.
It only started out as a simple flirtation. I thought, how could stitching a simple tea towel really hurt anything. And after my embroidery guru, vera, fanned the flames I went ahead and bought myself several Sublime Stitching patterns including "Under the Sea".
When the patterns arrived, my heart was all a flutter. I went straight out bought way more floss than I needed, needles, a hoop, and a cute little organizer for it all. Oh, this was more than a passing fancy, this was blossoming into a real relationship.
Soon I discovered I was head over heels about embroidery. It was so much fun to try out different color combinations and change up the stitches. I made French knots and everything! If that isn't love, I don't know what is.
When the tea towel was finished, I knew this affair was far from over. In fact, there are plans being made right now a companion mermaid tea towel. Because let's face it, everything is cuter in a set.
I love knitting. I always will. It is the love of my crafting life. But, it sure is fun to date around.
