blog 3rd - heartroot

I just found out about NaBloPoMo: National Blog Post Month, check it out at

Now I have to write once a day - I thought that it would be good practice. Here is what I am working on today:
I dyed some Timtex - really stiff interfacing - and tried so hard to embroider it with floss, but gave that up for a line of beads. The Timtex is so stiff though that I was having trouble holding on to it as I navigated all of the twists of the line ...

so I cut the center out and now the beading goes a bit more easily. And I have an idea about sewing it all back together.

Here is the heart and the root. Not crusty enough yet. More, much more is needed.

But the Out of Bounds Altered Book Project is due in less than a week, and I am behind in my class, and I haven't finished October Bird yet, and here it is November... Yeah, I will have plenty to write about as long as I get my little fingers nimbling along here.

Wait 'til you see what I am going to do to the root.
