My little sister came for a visit a couple of weeks ago. (By “little” I mean a married working woman pregnant with her second child, but still little to me.)
When she wasn’t lying on my couch reading, helping wrangle children, cleaning my kitchen, or making me sushi….
Doesn’t she have an adorable baby bump? She’s such a cutie.
… I made her sit down and learn to embroider.
I’m going to indulge in a little big sister “I told you so!” moment, because I have been harassing her to learn for months. I knew she would love it and be crazy good at it. She has a BFA and would paint gorgeous oil paintings before she got pregnant with her first. What is embroidery, but painting and drawing with thread?
So I handed her a Frixion pen and told her to sketch something to fill in.
…and a day later she had this.
I know. Right?
One thing, I enjoyed about her project was her color choices. She has fantastic taste and it is so different from my usual fare. I always have such a hard time choosing mine. The options are overwhelming.
Rachel pulled together these two sets.
She combined them for her project.
How about you? Do you enjoy pulling together color palettes? What is your process like?
