Thoughts on Thursday

Ah, Thursday, my “day off.”

So far I’ve fed my guys and gotten them out the door, I’ve packed two lunches, dropped one kid off at school, made two loaves of banana bread for a school project and washed two loads of laundry.

I might also have answered a dozen or so emails. And worked on some graphics. And a pattern. And possibly done some recycling.

It’s 10:30 now, so I might take a break. It’s my day off, really!

Did you guess who the young creature was in yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday? If you guessed me, you guessed right!

If you watched TTMT this week, you saw the InuYasha quilt in progress on my design wall, my second 12 for 2012 project. There were three sections that I was planning to stencil.

Yesterday, I decided one of them really needed to be embroidered.

Thank you Project of Doom for my current mad embroidery skills!

This is, to my knowledge, the only time the two main characters ever kiss in the series. I know for darn sure it’s my fangirl’s favorite scene!

Inspiration from the series, and a favorite moment for a girl that loves InuKag!

    This is just gorgeous. The fabrics are so perfect with the stitching. Did you freehand the design or trace over with the light table? It looks really, really good.

      Thank you! Miss E loves it, which makes it all worthwhile. 🙂

      I actually couldn’t see through the fabric with my light table, so I just rubbed chalk on the back of the paper and then traced over it right on top of the paper. It worked wonderfully!
