So I’ve been designing a lot of embroidery. And actually embroidering a little, too. By “designing” I mean opening a photo in Pixelmator (the poor man’s photoshop) and drawing over it. Lazy, but effective. The picture above is a design that has not come to fruition but probably will next time I get frustrated with the Christmas knitting.
I think embroidery is a better outlet for strong emotion than knitting. At least for me. Most of my designs thus far have been a bit vulgar, so I won’t put them here because my mom reads this blog. You can see my two latest finished pieces (both donated to Joey) here and here, but be warned – they cuss. My mom also cusses. But for some reason I’m nervous about mom seeing me cuss. Hi, mom! And by “mom” I mean my mom and big sisters. They’re kind of a conglomerate.
Anyway, lately I’ve really been enjoying designing pictures of people I dislike and then writing how I feel about them above the pictures. I won’t put those pictures here, because although people have been hassling me about being passive aggressive on the blog, I think they’d prefer the passiveness to flat-out aggressiveness. If I’m mistaken, let me know. Because that could be fun.
