Last week I finished up this embroidery. I made it on a day where I was feeling kind of blah and needed a reminder to love myself and my body.

A few weeks ago I shared a few snarky comment embroideries, and I have one more to share with you! This one simply states “Go Away.” The embroidery is on two layered pieces of fabric. The bottom layer is a vintage mint green fabric that is sheer and floral print. The top layer is a recycled white lace.
This was my first time embroidering on lace. The embroidering itself was really easy, because their wasn’t much fabric to go through. I wasn’t able to transfer a design onto the fabric though, so I had to do it free hand. Going at it free hand was definetley fun!
Below is the backside of the piece, where to you can see the green fabric used a little bit better.

A couple of weeks ago after the new moon I felt inspired to make a phases of the moon embroidery. Once I finished I decided that it would absolutely not be the last one that I do. Next time it might just be smaller, this one is in a 8 inch hoop, and it takes forever to do satin stitch (the fill).
This one didn’t turn out quite as good as I would have hoped… because circles are hard. I’m trying not to focus on that though, because over my few years of embroidering I’ve learned that imperfections are okay and natural. They play into the charm of handmade. I’m also finally coming to terms with the fact that it is unhealthy to compare yourself to others in whatever it is that you do. Everyone has a different take on things, and that’s what makes things interesting and beautiful.

I hope everyone has a good weekend, we’re off to Florida to soak up some sun and visit with my sisters! Goodbye snow!!
The piece is done on a purple linen and I tried to give it a little bit of texture by using a purple ombre embroidery floss for the background pattern.
This piece is is up for sale in the shop!
I added the hearts to give it a little bit of sweetness to go with it’s sassiness. This piece already sold, but their will be more similar to it coming up!
One of my favorite books, and favorite movies is Into the Wild. The writing is beautiful, and there is something about the story that I find to be so moving.
I wanted to keep the embroidery simple, because the story itself is one of simplicity. I did the embroidery on purple, hand bleached fabric. It hangs in a 4″ embroidery hoop, ready to hang above a bookshelf.
