SOME COOL STUFF TO SHARE
On my trip to South America I took an embroidery project from Crab Apple Hill.I had never done one before and thought it would be fun and easy to take.
Of course I am not a good embroiderer and never read the pattern so I ended up doing it my way. I later found out that the flowers were to be colored with crans that get ironed on and permanently stay. I sent a picture of it to Crab Apple Hill and they posted it on their site. I never know if a designer would be too pleased that I alter his/her work so I was happy to know that she liked it!I gave this to my sister Daniela, who embellished a lace border and then had it made into a pillow...here are some pics and a link to Crab Apple Hill's blog...
Also I wanted to share with you the wool wallhangings made by my Dad and I that are exhibited at the Lake Metro Parks Cleveland WOOLFEST show.. It's cool that they hang them together! I will be going to the show this weekend.
