One thing I love about Flickr is its ability to prove me wrong. See, this year felt like a bit of an unproductive wasteland for me - I spent so much of it thinking and going through some rough spots. It seemed to me I hadn't made much of anything. But all I had to do was click back through my archives to see I created much more than I realized. I love looking at things that my over-filled brain has completely forgotten, like that cute mixtape card, banner, and white-on-white embroidery and thinking, oh yeah, I did that. I've never had a visual medium to record all the ideas and things I make, so I'm really grateful for Flickr.
Oh, and by the way, an update on Mr. Pattinson - who you see in all his cross-stitched glory: he was finally dispatched to my best friend's home where he was duly opened by her mom whose reaction was "Lamb? Stupid? Wha-?" My best friend, however, cracked up. Her boyfriend likely rolled his eyes so hard he swooned. In short: Mission Accomplished. :)
This brings me to another challenge which I may take up. My best friend's office mate is solidly Team Jacob and has requested a cross-stitch of his abs. Seriously? Cross-stitched abs? The thought is so ridiculous I might have to do it. Can anyone help me find a pattern of cross-stitched Jacob abs? I'd be eternally grateful! ;)
