The Pitch!

The hardest part of the 20% project is figuring out what I want to do.  My first thought was cooking, but I know how to cook and love to cook.  I wanted to learn something that I haven't learned but am interested in learning.  

One of my earliest memories of my mom making clothes for me.  She learned how during her high school Home Economics classes.  Unfortunately, sewing wasn't my forte.  However, her sewing brought another idea.  Embroidery.  While similar to sewing, it allows for more creativity.  I like the idea of creating pictures with thread and needle and being able to use what I create when the project is completed.  So, for my 20% project, I am going to teach myself to embroider and I am not talking the embroider kits with the designs pre-stamped on the cloth and a easily followed key to what stitches go where.  I want to make everything from scratch and be able to use or display what I create.
