I love drawing with thread, which is essentially embroidery. But I am lazy and stubborn, so as the band say's… I can go my own way. Practice makes perfect, and I obviously haven't practiced embroidery enough. But my grandmother's 80th birthday was a day away and as usual, I had nada. Itching for some stitchery, I penciled on a scripture fitting of this precious woman and sketched a simple line drawing representing my sweet Nonnie. Being left handed, I could not for the life of me get the stem stitch, so I ended up basically making up my own. All in all, I felt like it looked ok enough to give her, but if I had time I would've done it over. This could maybe qualify as a grown up version of giving her a picture to hang on the fridge :) . It really is "crude" but I guess it represents my style anyway. I finished it off with a pretty silk ribbon at the top and wrapped her up. Nonnie seemed to like it.
It has inspired me to do a Proverbs 31 series. That should give me some practice. There are a lot of verses in Proverbs 31.
