I have always had a love affair with embroidery, needlework & fiber arts in general. So welcome to the 1970's when I was a teenager and embroidered these patches for my worn out jeans! Some of you who were also teenagers then you get this for the rest of you come along for the story. In the early 1970's you could not yet buy jeans for girls. We wore the boys jeans - so you see "boy friend" jeans is NOT a new term or style! So we girls altered them to fit us and as mine became worn in places I also added my own personality as I explored stitches and techniques.
I may just have "radar" for it, but I think that I have been seeing the popularity of embroidery again on Pinterest. Those of you who follow us on Pinterest know that I have a board for embroidery. My repins inspire me with patterns, colors, fibers, shapes and applications. Here are a few of my favs!
So here is a little peak at what I am working on now (in 2012!).
