Here is my second ever embroidery project – I did this one in March 2011, just a couple of weeks after I did my “Lucky” project. I LOVE this and I love the idea that I had to do a series of these cute and literal interpretations of Beatles songs. Oh, something you should know about me: huge Beatles fan. I *will* Get Back (ha! See what I did there?) to doing this series!
This is in progress… And it was done on a random scrap because I always intended it to be practice – but I like it. I had the lyric, “You can indicate anything you see…” from “Dig a Pony” in my head for a while. Then I started to imagine the pony… A cute innocent little pony. And it started me thinking about a whole series of images of cute and literal representations of Beatles songs and lyrics. So this is my first attempt. I messed up the letters a little. I’ve been intending on filling them in with a satin stitch, but nervous to attempt it. It *is* a practice attempt so I will attempt, eventually. Right now I just like looking at it because it makes me smile.
Funny how I thought it was in progress – because I’ve never gone back to finish off what I wanted to complete! But I think it looks great the way it is and I really need to get around to framing and displaying it – I love it so much that it’s really a shame that it’s sitting in a pile in my craft room!
