257: Hoop up Swap!

257: Hoop up Swap!

Even though I am so busy, and under many time constraints, I still do somehow find the time to overcommit myself even if it is to something that is supposed to be a creative release and be a “freshener” to my current obsessions….and it lies in this….I signed myself up for an embroidery swap.  If you come to the  Blue Nickel fairly often, you know that I am almost always behind the proverbial “8” ball.  This would be no exception. 

Briefly, here is where I am with this….first a piece of 50’s bark-cloth that is the inspiration for DeeRoo‘s piece.

    so far, all that I have is this sneak peek at my line drawing on the grey fabric she sent……  

and here are some more sneak peeks……for Kate….   


and for Courtney…..      

This is my piece that I will do for myself….maybe someday…..       

But first I have to get all these fine ladies theirs done first.  

Here is the sqaure DeeRoo sent me already!


And Kate also sent me this already….

You see why it is even harder for me to get going on these now?  These ladies have done incredible jobs on these, and I just don’t see myself coming up to their level…but I am going to try…..I am also going to be late…..I can guarantee it.  the group has pre-forgiven me though, so I am happy about that….that’s kinda like Pre-nups without the lawyers, right?

So that’s it for today…please, please tell me I can do this, I need all the encoragement I can get on this!!

  • I can’t believe I missed this…I check the group every day!! Man oh man that looks great!! I’m so excited but don’t feel rushed…it’s sort of fun getting these little treasures in the mail in bits and bobs. Something to look forward to!:)
