    Re: What are your Hobbies?

    If I can figure out a size that will work here, I'd like to share the backdrop I made with my students for the spring concert. It is huge - to go on the curtains at the back of the stage. 4 panels of felt flowers on burlap. They made the flowers and I used a hot glue gun to design the placement (and made a gazillion small circles for embellishment).

    Well, it's a little hard to really see the enormity of it, but you get the idea.

    Forgive me if I've already posted this:
    I've taken up embroidery again at work. It's period-appropriate (18211872) and a great conversation piece with our visitors.

    Please post when you are finished. I really like that era.

    I used to do embroidery whan I was young, but had no idea that there were different embroidery styles by period. That's interesting. Could you elaborate on that?

    It's not really the type of embroidery I meant that the craft itself is period-appropriate.
    But I do have to use materials and colors that are appropriate for that era: so, no wild flourescents or plastic hoops, etc.
    I did, however, do a quick Google search for pictures of designs. Flowers and baskets yes. Disney princesses, Spongebob, and Smurfs no.
