Over the weekend, I decided to put my new machine embroidery hoop to good use. And experimental is the word. It took lots of trials (as you can see below!) and lots of errors! But I did get to a point where I was happy and comfortable with the technique and outcome. So I am hoping there will be lots more to come!

oh! the excitement of a new hat!

Well, I do love a surprise in the mail. . . and today I came home to a most delightful parcel on my doorstep!! I have long admired the work of one mister Benjamin Krudwig. His stunning geometric (and sometimes fun!) designs, and his amazing craftsmanship. He also happens to be a totally awesome up and coming artiste! This tapestry crochet technique still alludes me!! But, it sure looks pretty darn groovy on my nogin! Thanks Benji! :)
