I've been working on this embroidery the last few weeks and am glad to have it done. There is a lot of thread piled onto this piece of fabric, it's so thick on the area of the cottage that it almost won't fold over! I used a lot of different brands of threads, including a lot of over-dyeds and thoroughly enjoyed the stitching of it!
Ok, in my last post I showed a picture of me with some family members and you could see a little bit of my tattoo. I promised to post a better picture of it, so was able to get hubby to take a good picture. But first, I want you to see the old one that's underneath the new one, because I think the tattoo artist did such a good job of hiding it. I never really liked the old tattoo and you can probably agree that it wasn't all that nice.
It was supposed to be a cat but people were always asking me what it was. A badger? A fox? A goblin?
Here's my new one and I really love it! It was done by Erik at Lakeview Tattoo here in Petoskey. I think you can agree that this one looks like a CAT! I love the roses, too, and my favorite part of the kitty is his eyes, don't they look real?
On a less happy note, my son-in-law Joe was badly injured on his motorcycle last week and is in the hospital. He was going 60 mph when a car pulled out of a driveway in front of him. He has many shattered bones and will be a long time healing so any good thoughts or prayers you could send his way would be appreciated!
Thanks so much for visiting again, I'm always so happy to have you drop in!
