Roundies-Out And About.

Hi friends!

There has been so many fun, supportive and exciting responses 
to these daily embroideries since our little show back in March. 

So much so, 
that I have decided to put them out into the world!

The kids have been making neat things for our local farmers market.
Such fun! 
I got out my paints and lots of hoops and painted them fun colors.
Then sold right alongside them.

I have been giving them away too.
That really is my favorite way to get them out and about.

I will update each embroidery posted here on the blog
 with the date it left my arms and hopefully where it ended up.

Could be fun to see how far reaching these little stitches can get.

Thanks so much to those who spent cold hard cash on my little hoops.

Means a lot. :)

Carry on with your Summer!

A Round A Day, One Year Later.

Hello! Almost one full year later!

A bit ago, after eight long months of being shelved, 
these guys got to see the light of day and breath. 

I sorted them with Minna.
Hooped and stitched them onto fabric and into garlands.

 Then packed up all 365 roundies 
along with the rest of the last two years of my embroidery life.

Then brought them to town to show them to people in real life.

Seeing them all together, framed, hooped and in people's hands 
was more than I ever thought would happen with this little project of mine. 

Friends and strangers came to see and share their own embroidery stories.
It was awesome, and fun and made me so happy to live where I live.

Myself and this table made page 1 of the paper.

Jeff's arm and dead rabbit are on page 3. 

The poor bunny is part of my new embroidery project.
Stitching from my photographs. 
I am enjoying it so much. 

No deadlines. No pressure.

Just me and a needle.
