it's so beautiful outside.

i finished the fourth embroidery. i may do one or two final touch ups, but for the most part they're done and i'm pleased as pie. also, here are some iron medallions i've been working on since our last iron pour with Mill Street Studio and Master Craftsman Studio. there are three total: two unpainted and one black one. i gave these TRG medals to two of my amazing teammates on the Tallahassee Rollergirls, our local roller derby team. ( Puertorrican Poison is sporting it the picture!

so check it: i slayed an art history test on the baroque era this morning, so i'm feelin like this weekend is starting out to be pretty excellent. hope yours is too!

these are a few of my favorite things

So, Here are four collaboration embroideries I've been working on for a while designed by my good friend, Lee Bretschneider. You can check out his awesome work at! He drew the basic image and I took off embroidering from there. He's working on a website for me right now that I'm EXTREMELY excited about. Stay tuned for more on that from my future self. The scarf is just something to keep my hands busy. It's a knit 4, perl 4, four line alternating pattern. Pretty simple, but fun checkers. It's easily become my favorite pattern to zone out to while knitting. I have a bad habit of daydreaming and I very quickly lose track of stitches on the regular.
