I didn’t update at all yesterday because frankly, I didn’t feel like doing anything at all. I forced myself to though. If I have one thing to be thankful for, at least I wasn’t sick last week. I won’t even go there if I had to have missed spinning and weaving!
We were to pick an embroidery design, draw it out and stitch it up. I ended up going home half way through the day because I was coughing so badly. I missed the part where it was supposed to be a pattern of historical significance (it wasn’t clearly written down anywhere on our assignment sheets and I didn’t hear anything about it… Fortunately, she accepted what I had done!). So I chose a design that was similar to a pillowcase my Granny Girl had done for me, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get when I fled. So at least it was historically significant to me. I swear to God, if I had have heard her, I would have did what was requested. I started embroidering around 9 pm and I didn’t finish until 5:45 this morning. I know, that doesn’t help the cough any, but what was I supposed to do? I can’t say that I was overly happy when I walked into class this morning after getting less that two hours sleep to see others still working on theirs! Ugh…
I will post pictures here later. I just wanted to write a quick base post so that I can keep track of what happened, when. I have a MAJOR paper and presentation due tomorrow. I just pray that I can stay awake long enough to finish it. I’m thinking this may be a Red Bull night… And hopefully more than two hours of sleep.
This is what I had printed out and then transferred onto fabric. If you would like the link to the design, you can find it here.
I left the finished piece at school. I will post it next week.
Edit: As promised, here is the finished product:
