I haven’t written a post in a while.My day job is always busiest in January and
February and I honestly haven’t felt very creative lately.I find myself constantly reminding my brain
that I must persist and honor any creative impulse.You might remember from back at the new year that persist was my chosen word for the year. With that in mind, I have been experimenting a bit on
“SuperBaby” my Babylock Destiny sewing machine; while not really making
projects I have made some stitch samples.Honestly, they make me feel a bit melancholy because while I have always
stitched out samples on my embroidery machines, I used to give them ‘by the bag
full’ to my mother who made table toppers, pot holders, etc. from many of
them.She’s gone now, so I’m sometimes
at a loss for what to do with my sample stash.
Here are a few things which have been under my needle,
mostly Valentine Day themed.
