i'm back on the interwebs!

wow. i've been off for about a week. is it sad that that's a long time to me? don't answer that.

it's actually been really really nice. i've gotten to spend some time with my husband, i read a lot, i played a lot of video games (super mario 2 & 3 for the WIN!) . it was awesome. i deleted old livejournals, then undeleted them :) , ate a lot of kiwi & strawberry shortcake, slept in, & generally felt really good! don't think i let the week go by without a lot of crafting going on either...i was a busy girl!

i made this for a sister of a girl i go to school with. she really liked my other jay z cross stitch so she wanted a pillow! well, i wasn't about to try something like that & have it end up a mess. so i just embroidered on a pillowcase i got from sublime stitching! i hope she likes how it turned out..and she even bought it from me! my first sold piece!

i wish i was better with lettering. i just can't seem to figure out how to get it lined up straight & centered. but i was really happy with the heart! i used chain, stem, back, & split stitch. i now LOVE chain & stem stitch! i can't believe i'd never tried chain stitch either. and i used to hate stem stitch. who'd have guessed they were my favorite in this project!

i love these, seriously, so much! they look a lot better in person though haha. it was all done in satin stitch, which i think i'm getting better at. i just thought it needed satin stitch. nothing else would do it justice. i'm really really happy with how they turned out! i just knew that pattern would be perfect for panties :)

I love the ovaries on the panties! It really is the perfect place to put them. You have the best ideas.

I also lovelovelove the unbreakable heart. You're a true artist :)

So perfect, in fact, I'd say that's the best thing to happen to a Jay Z lyric in a very long time.

Also, thanks for accidentally reminding me I still had a livejournal, it's quite a window back to junior-high school.
