my dad went to mexico for the fourth of july and beings that i've really been into hand embroidery I told him to get me some patterns from my grandpa's general store. He got me some but Im'm guessing my grandma took it upon herself to start the pattern off for me. Bless her heart.
I also went to a screenprinting/sign graphics/ embroidery expo downtown yesterday and picked up some nice little things that I could use as props in a photo shoot or as home decor. Like these 8" plastic diamonds. I aldo scored some seashells, a bulldog, a couple of letters to spell out art's name, and an ice cream cone....oh the uses of free stuff.
