...likes to keep busy
If I can, I like to make some gifts for Christmas. As you know, I do needlepoint, but I'm an avid embroiderer. I began at age nine with a pillowcase. My grandmother set me down on my parent's tiny front porch and passed me the pillowcase, already stamped with a kitty stepping on a fork. She showed me a bit and then said for me to try. I did and loved how the thread enhanced the piece.
About age nineteen, someone had given me this pillowcase to embroider...
Grandmother even crocheted the edging. I bet you can agree I saved the case because of her work, not mine. It's not bad; hopefully, I improved.
Last year, I worked these for my daughter-in-law:
I bought the already finished tea towels at JoAnn's and used a transfer I had. I like how doing the whole picture in black worked. I also added a favorite trim--rick rack.
Many times I've said I believe creativity begets more creativity. Do you think that shows in my writing? lol
