First off, sorry for this dark picture, we have been having severe storms. This is the huge amount of embroidery stuff that I have somehow come to own! I just can not control myself when it comes to embroidery "stuff." I have had a couple of the books for awhile but I have bought most of it this year!! I have hoops, needles, floss holders, patterns, kits, books and FLOSS!!!! Who how I love embroidery floss!! You should see me snatching up the skeins!! I am going to blame this on Big B. I found her sweet embroidery patterns, followed the directions on her blog, learned how to make a lazy daisy stitch (and more) made Kelsey a set of pillowcases and I was hooked!! I love it so much but I have to slow down. How many pillowcases can I use?
I spend waaay to much time doing embroidery. I tell myself that it's practice so it's ok. The one place were I refuse to do embroidery is at Cade's Karate class. I sit there the whole hour thinking "I could be doing embroidery" but I will not!! Don't think that it is because I am paying so much attention to the class. When the class is sparring, I am so nervous I can't even watch. So, why don't I take some handwork to class?? Cade has a really super intense female instructor. Ms. Lisa. All the students love her. All the parents are scared of her. We are talking super fit, clean eating and highly motivating!!! Everytime she does a class on nutrition, I am so scared that she will smell the M&M's on my breath!! Anyway, I feel bad enough sitting on my butt during class, encouraging Cade to hurry with his 80 sit-ups and push-ups, If I sit and sew I am afraid Ms. Lisa will look at me with scorn in her eyes, she will know exactly why my butt is so big!!
Have a great day!!! I am off to Karate classs!
