So it involves a needle, thread, and fabric. Not quite sewing I know, but work has kept me separated from my sewing machine. Hand embroidery is something I could do at work so I worked on these panels. I finished in roughly 5 days. They are kitchen proverbs I found online that had an old-fashioned feel to them.
More information on my blog here and here. It was super fun to use a more old fashioned kind of skill (hand embroidery rather than a machine) to create these classic looking pictures. How many people do you know even use some of these proverbs anymore? And there were more on the website I used. These are going to be a present for my grandmother, so I hope she enjoys them.
