Giganto embroidery project

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.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
