news // I'm the new embroidery expert on about.com
It feels a little strange to call myself an expert at anything. Mainly because aren't we all constantly learning and improving? But that said, I've just taken on a new title: Embroidery Expert.
I didn't give myself that title, but the fine folks at About.com did. You see, I'm now writing for their Embroidery site, and bringing my own experiences and personality. Right now most of what you'll find there was written by someone else, but you'll start seeing more and more from me popping up.
Starting with a fun way to use one or two small embroidery motifs to make a larger design. The idea came from this:
I saw this gorgeous woven tapestry and loved how the simple creature artwork repeated throughout, and wanted to try it with embroidery. The leaves in my stitching are about 2 inches high, but I'm betting that tiny would be equally cute.
But back to my news...
I hope you'll visit me at About.com, and keep stopping in here as well. I'm still figuring out the rhythm of life and writing for my own blog and others, while delighting in the work that I've been given.
