One More WIP

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

Remember when I spent an afternoon transferring patterns to fabric, thus creating a bunch of new WIPS/potential WIPS? Well, here's a pic of one of the projects that I'd started, then forgot about.

jordnots wip

(Pattern by Wild Olive.)

I had totally and completely forgotten that I'd started this little cutie, until I saw this adorable pic today on Flickr. Mollie's idea of turning embroidery into something wearable is so cool, don'tcha think? I won't be able to that with this particular project because I didn't leave enough space in between the individual jordnots...but that's ok since I'd planned to turn this into a wall hanging. But it's an idea that I will keep in mind when I am making future projects... :):)

Does it seem like a am doing a lot of Wild Olive stuff lately, along with a lot of gushing? I can't help it. I think Mollie's stuff is so cute!! I want to stitch all of it. ALL OF IT. If only I had time...sigh. ;)

Anywho, I hope all this gushing and ooohing and aaaahing over Mollie's stuff doesn't make me sound like a stalker, lol. Sometimes I find stuff online (well, on Flickr) that is just so flippin' cute, and I feel like I might be commenting on the photos too much, or scaring the person who took the pics. Does anyone else ever feel like this? (Please say yes. I don't wanna be the only one!! Haha.)

That's it for now! I will be back soon!! Until then...

Happy Stitching!

I definitely know what you mean about feeling weird about coming off as a weirdo. I hope that's normal because otherwise, we both really are weirdos.

Nice work on your embroidery :) I love progress photos!

Kristi said...

Adaiha--Whew! I am glad I am not the only one who feels like this. :0)

Thanks! I love progress pics, too.

Stalking? No, no, no. It is just a way of being encouraging to someone. At least that's what I tell myself when I get all sappy sweet when leaving comments on YOUR work...

Kristi said...

Mollie, you don't know how glad I am to hear you say that!! :-D

Rosa said...

You know, I think it's better to comment than not! (Maybe I'm just rationalizing...) But you're right, it does sometimes feel stalkerish.

Wild Olive's stuff is great tho', eh?

Miss Paula said...

Oh no Kristi, I comment on off the wall things on Flickr!! Hey they post the cuteness!!

I am again on an unmotivated streak...Read, stitch, read.... Reading has claimed me. I have read 5 books in the last month! Oh boy, I should get a life!!

Cute little WIP!! I got to typing and forgot to mention it!

Oh I feel sad when people don't comment on something I made. I like it when you leave comments. I love mollies stuff too. Great job on the WIP

yeah i think i left the dorkiest groupie comment ever today when i commented on a piece of cute embroidery in the "follow the white bunny group" and typed that it nearly brought tears to my eyes!

i like leaving comments, esp for people who are artists and design/draw/built their own stuff. and of course it's always nice to receive nice words in return.

i think it's way more weird to "favorite" a photo of like a foot or arm or something like that, that would be super weird stalker!

Isn't Wildolive's stuff the best? I just ordered a few patterns the other day and I don't know where to start, either. I think I'll do the Baker's Best Ingredients first.
