geek dad

Well it seems like my dad has already spammed a picture of his father's day card across the internets, but I wanted to wait until he got it before I posted a picture. Here it is! My officemate Kevin was throwing away a laptop keyboard, so I ripped off all the keys for use at a later date. Then father's day came along, and I realized what a supernerd my dad is, and how he of all people would appreciate a robot father-daughter scene. And yes, Anna is my nickname. Anyway I really love how it came out. :)

Crewel Flower Card

Not realizing it would take 3 hours, I embroidered this cute pattern from Katherine Shaughnessy's The New Crewel, which is a gorgeous book that I had been waiting anxiously for an occasion to put to use. Unfortunately the occasion turned out to be a sympathy card, but I think the pattern was very appropriate. The linen fabric I had was a bit coarse for the fine details of the project, but the final look was okay. A father's day card is also in the works, so stay tuned for more paper-crafting!
