Parade Day

I'm been thinking a lot about name tags lately. Sewing Summit is coming up in a month and I don't want to wear just a plain printed tag. BORing. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do, but of course that's half the fun. I also sat for a while and sorted out thread, really not a job I like. Seriously, is there anybody out there who actually enjoys winding embroidery thread onto those goofy bobbins? I watched Be Kind Rewind while I did it, because I needed a mindless (but hilarious) movie to keep me company while I did my mindless winding.

With the bobbin winding out of the way I moved on to fabric selection. I know, really exciting, right?!
Ha.

And that's as far as I got. Yup. Not a stitch done. But I'm starting today, so next week I'll have something. I hope.


Now it's your turn!!

I just ask a few things of you:
1. link only projects with some handstitching
2. link to a specific post
3. use the linky party button (found in my sidebar) in your post, so others can easily find the party and join in
4. visit other Handmade Parade partiers, because everyone likes comments :-)
.....and go!
