"Let Him Sleep for when he wakes he will Move Mountains"
The first time I saw this quote on Pinterest, I loved it. I thought it was the sweetest thing ever. I knew I had to do something with this for Max. So time went by, I did nothing, did lots of other things, then finally decided to do something. Do something with the quote that is. I hope you followed that last statement, because I barely did. Anyway. That exact day that I decided to do something, I got an email from Emily Jones Design. The email was a tutorial about how to embroider. Ummm, perfect, it was fate! So off to AC Moore I go, with an amazing vision in my head. Well, as always, I get there and can't seem to find anything that is in my "vision". So I continue to search for things that are kind of like my vision. I came home with cross stitch fabric(I don't even know if that's what it's called..), a needle that definitely wasn't for cross stitch OR embroidery, an embroidery ring and a ton of navy blue cross stitch thread. So I used what I got and made it work. It turned out sooo cute, I'm totally smitten with the finished product. I went and bought a cheap frame from Target, and that finished it off. Now just to get it hung on Max's wall. That will probably take us another 2 weeks. Things usually end up taking 3-5 days too long around here. Such is life...
The close up
I definitely want to do more projects involving embroidery, I really really liked doing it. I would definitely have to play with differents though. This funky, not lined up, weirdly spaced font works well for this particular project, but wouldn't for all.
