Oh man, what a week. My fingertips are sore and calloused, I’ve had way too little sleep,and overall it’s been GREAT. In addition to all the sewing I managed to slip away long enough to see the Chinese Terracotta Army exhibit (hopefully more on that later) and Cinderella at the San Francisco Ballet.
Now, everything has wrapped up, the embroideries are mounted (which is a much longer, more arduous process than you would suspect and it makes your hands and thumbs hate you ten times as much as they already do from your stabbing them all the time), and tomorrow I fly to my family reunion.
I’m not going to post all of them, but here are several process shots…
And finally, the completed piece! We’ll get them back in a couple of weeks after they’ve been graded.
And my personal favorite part…I love how my little blue unicorn turned out! (“HE’S SO FLUFFY!!!!”)
So many thanks to the people at RSN for everything they’ve taught me over the last ten days!
