I am slowly making some progress, but it is so slow. Mostly because I’m attempting to embroider all the diamond shapes on a three-yard piece of fabric, using my tambour hook, and also a cheapo embroidery hoop. I had championed tambour, but with my setup, boring old chain stitch is what I’m going to switch to. It’s much less fiddly.
So here’s the project:
It will be gorgeous when completed, but I have a long way to go.
(Thanks to Blake for the use of the camera, like, months ago. I am so tardy with my thanks.)
And that sari? The one that’s different colors in different light? Voila, la preuve:
Same sari! Crazy!
And then I took a bunch more photos:
This is the awesome sari of awesome. I have no idea where I’m going to wear it.
These shoes are awesome, but they pinch.
Yarrr. We own two pirates. This is the smaller of the two.
Sometimes I even decorate! This glass vase came from the same person as the small pirate, and sort of unexpectedly coordinates with my Ikea Halloween candle from three years ago. The vase has a little hole in the bottom, but I can easily plug that up.
Mmm. It’s nice to have access to a nice camera, even if I’m just taking photos of tchotchkes.
