I climbed on the back of a giant albatross

A new embroidery from a sketch I did last year.  The words kept coming into my head while I was stitching and I thought they were from an old Beatles song.  But no.  I googled it and they are from Traffic's Hole in my Shoe from the 1960s.  Now I just have to download it from itunes so I can hear it again!  I seem to remember it was a child's voice that speaks those words.

I have been doing a bit of sketching lately and trying to figure out how to do some free patterns to upload for anyone who wants to use them, as a few people have said they wish some of my embroideries were patterns.  These little ideas for sketches keep popping up a lot lately, so I have been keeping my sketch book handy, and that makes such a difference.  It's so easy to forget an idea if it's not jotted down somewhere.

And I joined Pinterest, which I will have to be careful not to become addicted to.  I want to do more drawing and stitching rather than spending huge chunks of the day looking around at all the wonderful stuff there is online.  I think I will have to allot a certain amount of 'pinterest' computer time.  Now it must be 'cup of tea' time...... little girl on her bird is on Feeling Stitchy, yay!!

PPS...I have just put the pattern for this embroidery in my shop...wendalene at big cartel
