New Project: So I have a kinda neat project to share with you. A graphic designer friend of mine is doing a project on her blog/site to try and promote creativity amoungst other designers. (for those not aware my day job is graphic design for a magazine).
So she challenged us all to create a project revolving around smoke. It could be any media or platform that we wanted. So I took a crack at it... in cross stitch. I built the font myself for the letters and worked out a design (with the help from the B/F who is also a designer) I came to a final piece.
I have started stitching it but right now only have pics of the supplies to be used... and the sketched out pattern.
Castles update: I have been working on Part 4. I am almost done it. Pics to come soon. And then it's back to Dragons stitching for me. But this was a nice little break.
My Broken Toe: I know as if there wasn't enough medical issues for me right now... yesterday on my way to the doctor to review my meds and stuff for my sphincter issue... I fell and hit the corner of my couch VERY hard... breaking/spraining my baby right foot toe. It's a nasty, nasty hit... My toe is all swollen and bruised and very gross today. I did get to my appt yesterday and then called into work and said, hey I gotta get blood tests and stuff done and then I'm going home cause I hurt my toe really bad.
Silly but true.
I can't believe how much a stupid little toe can hurt! But I have to giggle cause it's just so silly on top of all my way more serious issues. Though it is a real pain to deal with. So I'm working but elevating my toe for the time being.
Coming up: I know, I know... giveaway. I'm not meaning to tease but other things keep coming up. I will try to organize it maybe tonight or on the weekend. So do stay tuned.
Thank you for all your comments on my Castles and the linen. I did restretch the linen abit and reattach it to my scroll rods. It's a bit better. (oh and I ironed it and stuff). I'm working away at it still so I think I'm a bit happier with it.
