Embroidered flowers & Paris streets
I went to a Christmas party with a bunch of bright and merry girls last week. We did a gift exchange in which we were to either find something lovely and desirable or make something. I chose to make something. I had this fun Paris map fabric, some old buttons, and a bunch of embroidery string in my craft drawers. I’ve come to find that as I acquire the things I love, I end up with many of the same colors and patterns that go really well together. This pillow was begging to be made! I was hoping someone who loved feminine and french things would pick it or steal it. A very sweet, hip girl stole it! She told me she likes to imagine herself on the streets of Paris with a baguette in her bag. parfait!
While I was embroidering the flowers, Finn snuggled up next to me and said, “Oh! You’re making pictures with string!”
“You could make a fox, or a mushroom, or a tree!“
