20 in 20 giveaway (day 8)...

handmade
20 handmade projects in 20 days...day 8. I was thinking about my bug-loving Kicky when I made this. Yesterday she carried around a little cat purse all day and, when I went to look inside, I was surprised to find a beetle and scorpion (both in resin, of course). That girl has no fear, which is really fabulous. The world needs more fearless women! Couldn't you imagine a whole series of these bug embroideries pinned to a wall? Thanks to ravenna girls Vintage for sponsoring today's project (they also have a great blog). Happy 20 in 20!

so fantastic! It's really hard not to comment on these but I don't feel like I should be entered in the contest--so just know I'm secretly commenting on them daily. I don't know how you get all this work done with 2 kids--I can't get anything done with my one!

Oh, I want this so bad! Like God, I have an indordinate fondness for beetles.

And absolutely, a whole gallery of these would be lovely! Do you have any plans to release patterns for the needlework you've done as part of your 20 for 20 projects? I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat!

Oh I love how small it is!

Penelope said...

I was *so* a girl like that - when I was little I used to carry home spiders with "interesting backs" to draw them in my homemade "Stuff I Like". Wish I had that little book now - oh the sorrows of moving house too many times. And Happy Birthday to you, BTW! :)
