i found this great site...flickr embroidery group. i had been planning to take a couple of things with me to embroider on the plane trip to memphis. i hate to fly, it is soooo boring and this will be a kind of long trip. well, long for ME! i know there are people who go to REALLY long trips like to europe, or my friend dena goes to turkey...cannot even IMAGINE! after 3 hours i am ready to throw myself from the plane! so, i like to keep occupied and i will take a book (most likely another anne frasier) and needlework.


back to the embroidery site...it has a lot of great links, and if you are interested in embroidery you will love it! i like that it also has transfers. i have been going to ebay and looking for some there, but i am not totally in love with ebay! i hate when you bid on stuff, and they call you a loser! i just want to be able to buy it...some things you can, but usually the stuff i want has to be bid on! i like also that the site links to let you see what other clever people have done. i think that is my favorite part of the whole blog thing...so much fun stuff to look at! i will never have time in the world to do stuff i want to, but someone else may do it, and i can look at their beautiful works!

I hate the plane rides too. I have stayed away from planes for a long long time. So long, that I am now having a paranoia about ever travelling by way of plane again. Funny, just as I am typing, they are showing a plane crash on some CBS show. I am sure you will keep very occupied with this wonderful new hobby of yours....I have not ebayed in so long....Sounds annoying....So, on another note, Thank you tons and oodles for your support! The show starts tomorrow.. of to bed I go....xxo,Vanessa

vanessa ~ not such a new hobby for me...i was doing embroidery before they 'let me loose' with the sewing machine as a kid! someday soon i will post my embroidery that i still have from when i was a kid. i even have the book still that my mom gave me that SHE had in high school to learn the stitches from! and you are totally welcome, i think you are an awesome artist! hope you do great things at your show!

Ah! I HAVE to get back to embroidering! It is my first love! I taught myself how to embroider when I was 17...even making up my own stitches! Since I am dyslexic I some times do things backwards and makes for a great adventure! Hee hee

That photo of the Carmen and Bones...who are those from??? I HAVE to have them!
