First, let me be clear: I am developmentally challenged when it comes to embroidery. This is an understatment. It is also amusing because the first kind of needlework I ever learned as a child was crewel (or cruel?). And the backside of any needlepoint I did looked like overcooked spaghetti. Ask me to make a french knot today and you’ll see me reduced to tears. Let this serve as a preamble to my not-so-lazy daisies.
These replace the “Peeps” embroidery on the Katie Bell Baby Cardi. The daisy detail is a pretty good representation of the color – some days the camera is just none too pleased with me. What I will not share with you is how long it took me to adequately execute said daisies. They are done.
I needed centers for the flowers, so that sort of changed the whole direction of the look I was going for with this sweater. With white centers, the blue wooden buttons no longer worked, so here’s how it ended up:
It still needs to be blocked, and then thoroughly gratuitous shots of Darling Bebe wearing it in motion.
So there are the photos I promised. Since Friday is an unofficial day set aside for eye candy, here’s a bit of my favorite eye candy by far.
