I started an embroidery! I don't really know why, I just think embroideries look cool. But I don't have an embroidery hoop, so I made my own makeshift piece of cardboard frame. It is not the greatest. I had the floss/thread from a long time ago when I used to make friendship bracelets a lot. Here is my progress so far:
It is difficult to do! My design isn't turning out the greatest. Actually, I don't really know how to embroider. I'm pretty much just guessing and going along with it. My design is based off a design I found here.
After seeing this post about light photography, I tried it quick one night. I don't have a good light or the right kind of flashlight to make it work very good, and the darkest place in my apartment gets lit up with the flashlight I was using, so my photo isn't dark enough. But it's still kind of cute!
My first days of classes went okay. I was supposed to buy some supplies for printmaking, but haven't had any time to go to the art store. I am going to be working a lot more this semester, which is good because I need the money.
