I started this project back in November 2009. I thought it would be a GREAT idea for a Christmas present that year. Well...it turned out to be more of a project than expected and I was FINALLY able to complete it and ship it off the it's amazing recipient last week. Here's what I based it off:
And this is what I did:
Here's a closer view:
I'm extremely proud. After I was about 2-3 weeks in to this project I stopped working on it because I was afraid it would turn out the way I envisioned in my head. It turned out exactly the way I'd hoped. Even the frame turned out exactly as I wanted.
I'd say my embroidery has come along way since I was 10:
This is his mighty steed. He hit Oroville around 6:30 last night and he didn't seem all that sure about today's ride!!! He said he looked at the map and today's route is pretty much all up hill. And by hill I mean mountain. I'm confident he'll make it no prob.
For me, I'm headed to Texas for the weekend. I'm going to be busy watching soccer, eating Whataburger and going to the dueling paino bar.
Also...I'm buuuuuummed I couldn't find a good reason to get the Jet Blue fly anywhere for a month free deal. If I was still working weekends I'd have been all over it!!!
Today from Bother and Sister. It definitely put a smile on my face and made me remember how much I ABSOLUTELY love my family. Yeah...I know. This is a little too mushy gushy for some...even for me. I usually hate this "oh I love everyone" crap. Oh well...you'd be stoked if someone in your family gave you a rose and a card. Hell...I'd be stoked if this came from some creepy stalker even. Not that that wasn't a *hint* or anything...
Starting today I'll be avoiding fast food until September. This should prove to be exceptionally hard due to all the traveling I'll be doing this month. ESPECIALLY since I've already planned on hitting up Whataburger while I'm in Texas. Yikes!!!!
Maybe in September I can just have my friend send me some so that way I can avoid eating any giagantic burgers while I'm there!!!!
I'm pretty sure I'll be out of the running by the end of the week. Mostly based on the fact that I don't really go grocery shopping and that I don't pack lunches for work. I'll keep it updated though.
