Embroidery is Cool, Really

This weekend I went to Art Star for a book signing and gallery opening with the lovely Jenny Hart, embroiderer extraordinaire and founder of Sublime Stitching, which sells fun embroidery stuff. Having been buying her patterns for years and stalking her via the internet craft mafia, it was very nice to get to meet her. She is very tall in person and lovely to talk to. So go buy her stuff and see her show, people!

Aren't we cute?

And for good measure, here are some of her patterns that I stitched up awhile ago. I need to find something to do with them. I already have a bunch of stuff I've embroidered on my walls, I think I need some new way to show them off.

I spend most of my craft time knitting, but I was an embroiderer first and it is still really fun to go back to. And it is a cheap and easy craft to pick up if you're looking for something less intimidating than knitting or arc welding or whatever.

Oh yeah, and I got an advance copy of Jenny's new book. Nyah nyah!
