It's been an overcast, cloudy, lazy bunch of days. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a little bit down. It's just so darned overcast over here!!

I apologize for getting behind on my posts! I am constantly on the internet, so if you ever need more Art Like Bread inspiration, do not hesitate to check me out on Ravelry, Twitter, Delicious, or Tumblr. I know, I know. I'm so connected.
I had a few "free" hours today, so I thought I'd bust out a new craft. Believe me, I've got lots a-brewing, but when a craft calls your name, you've gotta answer. I rummaged through my craft closet and dug out my cu-cu-cutie Julie West patterns from Sublime Stitching, along with my floss collection, a sharp, my tiny scissors, and some muslin. It took a while to find the hoop, but I got that going on now!

I wouldn't call myself an embroidery novice, but I'm definitely (ahem) inexperienced. I adore Jenny Hart and everything she produces, so when she sends out a newsletter with a tutorial, or little tips, it really does inspire me to break out the supplies and give it a go. Most recently, Jenny showed how to Build a Coral Reef, which inspired me to create a scene with her patterns. I consulted Doodle-Stitching by Aimee Ray for some additional inspiration and I was good to go.
I'm stitching right now. It's a whimsical scene, and I've even included a flash of green metallic thread. I have no idea what this project will become, but I will certainly keep you informed. Here's to stretching our crafty horizons. Viva Craft!
