My Daughter has caught the Embroidery bug! Self portrait with things she enjoys... I'm happy to say, she has learned these stitches in school. I was quite joyous & PROUD in her use of the satin stitch! ;-) Oh So Sweet! I'm glad they are teaching the kids some sewing skills, very few do anymore... Do they still teach sewing in the schools in your neck of the woods? Home Economics doesn't exist anymore, does it?
I know I didn't appreciate the skills at the time, but I can proudly say, I am grateful now! LOL!
Speaking of being PROUD. My darling Hubby, received the FIRST copy of his NEW BOOK yesterday! Yippee! The man is full of good stories, I tell ya... So if you have an interest in art, check it out... Having been in the NYC Art world since the 60's, he has known some amazing people and has many good yarns to share...Maybe even inspire you! ;-)
Do you visit your local museums to see art to be inspired?
