And it turns out that Andrew's mom and grandma made it their mission a few years ago to collect every colour of embroidery floss put out by a certain company. I've got a lifetime supply of floss in every imaginable hue available at my disposal. Guess I know what I'm doing for christmas this year! So far I'm drawing all my designs freehand in pencil, on a background of muslin. I think after I finish this handsome fella I'm gonna try my hand at fancying up a pillow case.
