The trouble with embroidery...

I've been slacking. I haven't met my two project per week goal in two weeks, namely because one of the projects I'm working on involves a hand-embroidered circle. Ever tried that before? It's insanely difficult. I traced out a nice circle, but somehow it ended up egg shaped anyway. So I had to rip half of it out and start again. Yikes.

No more hand embroidered circles. For serious. In fact, no more perfect geometric shapes at all. Only organic forms for me, thanks. I don't believe in straight lines or right angles. Ever seen one in nature? I didn't think so. Anyway, I'm off to try and complete it. Wish me luck.

Happy Halloween!
