So as always I want to change my life- no real big changes, I think I just want to do more to make me happy. Why has this all come about again? Well I spent the weekend at the beach and that always makes me want to be happier because the beach makes me happy…

Beach…
Tybee Island 2013

Things to do to make me happier…
1. Start selling crochet and knit projects. Start creating patterns to sell… BEGIN TO EXPAND MY TALENT… big task, but I am in no rush and the extra income would be nice. Now if I could just not deal with Etsy- they kinda get on my nerves. So plan- work on the few patterns that I have created and make things to sell.
2. Read and educate myself more. There are all kinds of list of books you should read in your 20s, 30s, before this and that. I need to read more of the classics. I know I can’t stand old english or Victorian or Shakespeare, but I think I do need to stop reading crap and start increasing my brain knowledge- so plan 30 minutes of reading prior to bed every day.
3. LIVE AT THE BEACH… no this one is the one to really work on, bu

And that is all folks…

So a lovely lady that I work with is leaving for a new job working from home. About a month ago I found this website with totally funky and punky embroidery patterns located here. It is really cool, the style is a little bit old school tattoo and punk rock. I heart it.

So this is the site I got my home sweet home embroidery pattern from… Did I post it? Hmmm…

Anyway. This site has a cute pattern that says cubicle sweet cubicle which I thought would be great for the girls at work, but at last we are no longer in cubes. So this was the inspiration for this particle project.

I hand embroidered a lovely little thing that says sweet home office. I pulled in some elements for the home sweet home project and some from the cubicle sweet cubicle pattern and then added some of my own touches. I do have to say I love it, no really LOVE IT!!!

My lighting was not that good last night. I need to get a light box for photographs…

Moving on. I made it into a little wall hanger thingy. I did this by cutting a piece of cardboard to fit in the hoop, hot gluing the actually embroider piece around the cardboard and then hot gluing a piece of fabric to the back. The back fabric bunched so I added the ric rac to cover it. Then I added some ribbon to hang it.

So lovely. I think I want to embroider for a while. Just maybe….
