|Nero, our newest addition :)|
I have a looong summer reading list waiting on me, as I've mentioned before, and so far I've re-read Wicked by Gregory Maguire, read The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, re-read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (obviously! ;) and now I'm working on Northanger Abbey. Next I'm going to read Son of a Witch, Wicked's sequel. After that... hmm, not sure. What are YOU reading right now? I'm very curious, so make sure you post below! :)
I also started embroidering again, playing around with some of my own thread doodles ("designs" just sounds too pretentious haha ;) as well as some vintage ones. It never fails that I have all of these great ideas, especially at night, and then when it actually comes to executing them I'm not sure what to do. I'm also always afraid of ruining materials, so crafty experimenting scares me. Well, do or die, I'm determined to complete SOMEthing this week and post a picture. This is part of my scaredy-cat crafters anonymous therapy ;) What project(s) are you working on or have planned? What do you do when you're feeling intimidated by a project you've taken on?
I have found a few more favorite pieces on Etsy (of course!), so without further ado, here they are! I hope you love them as much as I do :)
