Hello World....

Come on get happy

I have been so caught up with learning to knit that I have been ignoring embroidery. Feeling bad for all my hoops and floss because they look at me so longingly from across the room that I took pity on them and embroidered something.

Now I am hooked again! It must have been their evil plan all along. I seriously think I am addicted, I might need help. Embroidery is my drug. I sit there and stitch and just relax so much that I have fallen asleep. I normally wake up when I stab my finger *ouch*. I was getting bored a bit with embroidery because I was not challenging myself with new stitches so for my next project I had to do something new.

This one I posted on my vintage blog was just calling to me. I loved watching the Partridge Family re-runs as a kid. Who would not want to be in a family band and travel around on a techno-color bus? I sure did. What did you want to do when you where a kid?

This looks amazing! I love the style of this illustration, thanks for sharing it on your other blog & for showing it all stitched up as inspiration here.

{p.s. I lauged out loud when I read about how you fall asleep while you embroidery - I do the same thing sometimes!}

That does look like the Partridge family! How cute! Uh, I wanted to be in band when I was a kid, thanks to watching to Keith, Laurie and the gang.

this embroidery is so adorable! I'm all about embroidery now too, although I'm doing quite a lot of felt applique. When I was a kid, I didn't think much about the future, but I did want to be Laurie Partridge or Marsha Brady. I thought they were pretty and had it all going on... I was probably more like Jan in real life...
