Is embroidery a dying art?
Nay nay, I say. It is experiencing a one-woman revival here in apartment 2B. Behold some of my recent handiwork. Seriously, embroidery is so ridiculously simple that a hamster with only slightly better than average dexterity could do it. If you can trace a picture, color inside the lines, and sew a button, you can embroider. I downloaded a bunch of fonts to my computer, cool Jugendstil and Arts and Crafts-style ones from the last century, and have begun going to town. I haven't figured out how to post more than one photo per post yet, but I'll try.
