The movie title popped into my head when I was on the hunt for one 4x4 square of Wonder Under. That is all I needed. I searched high and low and everywhere in between ( and made a massive mess along the way) but it was just not meant to be. But while I was searching ( I had a mission like in On My Way to the Forum), I came across some things I had forgotten I made and that was enough to really get me off track.
I learned how to do embroidery on a car trip to Chicago almost four years ago. I made stitches, got mad at how awful they all were and started over numerous times. Despite my constant unstitching, I finished a few small projects on the trip. When I was back home, I put them safely in a drawer and had completely forgotten about them. It made me smile today when I was digging and out these popped! They looked so much better than I remembered. I am so overly critical of my own work. This is a lesson to me to lighten UP!
These were all made with Aurifil 12wt threads. The floss is fabulous but if you have the 12 wt on hand, give it a go! You will love it too!
This one was made as a quilt label for a baby blanket. I guess I still need to send it! I finished the label way after the quilt. I am a very slow stitcher.
So other than the embroidery find, the 8 year old wanted a turtle of his own to match his log cabin quilt! I may never make otto the Forum at this point! So, here is new turtle, he is so far unnamed. I liked Elliot but the young man said NOPE! What would you name a log cabin turtle?
This day has gone way off track! I gave up the search and had the boomerang boy stop on his way from college to pick up some Wonder Under for me. Maybe I can resume my journey after a cup of coffee and a funny movie :o)
