Sunday dawned bright and clear and sunny letting us go out and inspect the damage.
|Worst October Snowstorm in 100 years. 10 inches to 2 feet.|
|In 15 miles of road we counted 100 downed power poles. Thank God for the generator!|
|So many damaged trees and dead cattle, sheep and horses.|
|Tiramisu braves the outdoors for the first time in three days.|
I wanted to give something back to all of you and I didn't want to have to choose one so I thought I'd share a sneak peek at a project I'm working on. TaDa!
|Simply embroidery on the left, heat set crayon on the right.|
I really want to see what some applique would look like.
If there's ever a time I could be could be called a nerd it's with words. I love words and don't think good words are used often enough. I've been collecting kawaii images on Pinterest for awhile in hopes of putting together a quilt sometime. Six inch squares alternating between a kawaii shape and solid fabric blocks. When I thought of words my idea was set! What do we want children to BE? I'm working on my drawing skills and coming up with a whole set of Be Kawaii embroidery patterns.
This is my first one. Be Patient
Patience: Waiting without complaining
Patient : able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people
*done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying
*bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint
* manifesting forbearance under provocation or strain
* not hasty or impetuous
* steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity (according to Websters)
If there's one thing I've learned this year is to be patient. Starting a business, starting a blog, living life, it all takes patience and what's more patient than a seed? So as thanks for following along with my crazy adventures this past year I'd like to share this with all of you who are interested. If you'd like a copy of my patient kawaii seed embroidery pattern leave me a comment with your email or email me at emsewcrazy (at) yahoo (dot) com. I'll send you a PDF of my six inch embroidery pattern. If you do make it up I'd love to see a photo though!
Well the generator is going to get turned off pretty soon so I better get some other things done. I'll see ya all around!
