A new embroidery project is emerging. This is how it came about...
When you are a crafty type a lot of people you meet start off sentences like this -
'You know what you should do...' insert advice here about a project they think is a winner.
At this stage I smile politely and try to stay focused. You never know, someone might just have a gem to share, but usually not (help me out here other designers, you KNOW what I'm talking about).
Last month I worked for six days at a Craft Show in Melbourne. If you met me on the first 4 days you were lucky. If you met me on the last 2, I'd have to say a big sorry. My passion for life was snuffed out on those days by PMS and being interstate without my kids.
Back to the story. It must have been in the first few days when I met a crafty lady, who after looking at my matryoshka dolls, shared a story about a hand embroidered doll she had when growing up. Thank you whoever you are, I told you I'd do one. It's in the works now!
