This is the embroidery I did on the drive to and from Portland last month. I finally got it attached to a journal. My husband thought it was funny that we were heading to Portland and I was sewing a bird, since we are both fans of Portlandia. This was completely unintentional, but still. I did the embroidery free hand. I think it turned out okay, it was fun to make anyway. :)
I made this journal from the softest cotton T-shirt material. It is super fun to hold/hug. I am taking a summer math class that is really fast paced, so I may not get much more crafting done for a while.
I did get to take a trip to the Oregon Coast last weekend. We also caught a show in Portland with Camera Obscura, they were really cool. And, we got to eat at our favorite restaurant there; Por Que No? Happy 4th of July my peeps!
My parents are both really hands-on type of people. Growing up, my Mom was always sewing or making music while my Dad was remodeling the house or wood working. I finally tried my hand at sewing and have really liked it so far. My kids really cheer me on! I am just getting into the book- binding hobby and think I have finally found my niche. Thanks for looking! :D
