Turbo Embroidery!

This month I have been powering through ridiculously time-consuming embroidery projects, clocking eight-hour chunks over and over.

(When Netflix asks if I’m still watching for the third time, I’m allowed to hit yes but have to stop the next time! I love embroidering so much it’s easy for me to overextend and I had tendonitis last year. )

Also I finally got a Swarovski crystal application tool that runs on EU current. It is vicious- it heats up so fast. suz by mike estee

My friend Mike, who took this nice picture of me working like a fiend, pointed out that the current here is a BEAST. And of course I have already burned myself with it. I don’t mind, though.

It’s like burning yourself with the glue gun- it helps you know you’re alive!

Moth Embroidery by Suzanne ForbesI decided to try scanning the pieces besides using my pathetic photography “skills” and D’s iPad. The color reads a little cool but I think you can see the details much better. As I’m increasingly doing re-embroidering, going back over every stitch many times with layers of color and metallics, it’s nice to be able to see all the work.

Also I realized it’s time I start signing these on the front, and I’m really happy with how the deco monogram came out!
