Oh such high hopes I have today. Working on the embroidery of this little dress has inspired me to give a go at French hand sewing. I'm going to try the Austin Stitchery Guild this month to see if I like it. I would like to get some constructive feedback on my embroidery. I can attend two meetings without paying. It is hella expensive to join. I would like to work up to doing a program at EGA (Embroiderer's Guild of America--including Canada!) on plain and fancy work. The first requirement is shadow work, which I've never done and will have to really think about a design I would like.
I feel so much more relaxed since giving up the doll. I'm not sad about it anymore. I really like what I'm doing.
