Animals that Say Hi

So, okay. I probably haven’t mentioned this here before, but I’m a bit of an embroidery dabbler. It’s a little side activity I enjoy, mostly because it frees me from the perfectionism of sewing. For whatever reason, I just don’t feel the same need to be meticulous which—sometimes—can be a very refreshing thing.

For the past couple years, I’ve slowly been stitching away at a kind of bizarre goal: I want a whole wall full of embroidered animals that say hi. It started with this little bird. (Taken from a Sublime Stitching pattern, and then embellished with hand lettering, as all of my little creatures are.)

 A monkey came next. Embroidering the type is the hardest part!

 This hedgehog greets you cordially.

 As does this blue squirrel.

 The Tiki god is a little more intimidating, and not technically an animal.

 The kitteh speaks LOLCat, of course.

Jeff and I just hung these up in the entrance way, which seemed an appropriate place. Between you and me, it’s my life’s goal to have a full hallway of these little creatures by the time I’m an eccentric old woman.

That’s all! Just a window into my weird little life. Kthxbai!
