…or “in which I maintain my ‘goals'”…
I have recently blabbed on here that I’d like to do some things a little better this year. The mostly imagined pressure from my readership has worked all of these 24 hours since writing the last post. Today I
- read more (see #3)
- sewed more
- got a little closer to God (see #1)
To prove that I’m more godly I sewed something biblical today as well (see #2):
It’s my holy hedgehog. He’s a pincushion. Hedgehogs are all in the Bible. I think they were called leviathan back then, or something. So, yeah. Here’s his other side:
He’s ugly as sin. I should knit a little tail and call it a mouse. In sewing Goliath I learned two very important lessons.
- I hate hand embroidering. One would think that since I own an embroidery machine and even ran a business with it that I might enjoy a little hand work. False. If I ever make another Goliath I will sew black fabric on for the nose.
- I can actually do a french knot and they’re not hard. Who knew? Online tutorial videos are pretty close to a Godsend, especially for someone impatient.
P.S. Here’s a link to the pattern. I’m sure yours will be cuter.
