a little special something that I am working on for my sweet lil't. Everyone expected me to be knitting blankets, crocheting clothes, and embroidering special items- but truth be told I never enjoy making anything "useful" I just like to make my art and leave the usable items to others.
So I was very lucky that my grandma crocheted some hats and blankets, my aunt some booties, my friends mother a blanket, an online friend a quilt, my mom sewed a many things, and my sis made some very cool babers clothes.
But in order to add to his collection of gifts made from love I am making a small embroidery with a photograph from his first weeks and a little statement to the side. It is almost done and I am excited to get it washed and pressed and share it with all of you- so today we are walking down to the new park to watch the river, look at the Manhattan skyline, and embroider.
