Today I completed 2 challenges in 1! Challenge 70 required I make a piece of wall art and Challenge 57 that I find an idea on-line and try one for myself. Since I’ve started blogging I’ve also started reading blogs and there are many creative people doing amazing things. I saw a similar idea to what I have done on the Red Gingham blog and felt very covetous.
There is a lot of action in my house, a lot of talking (and not all me) and a lot of imagination but not a lot of art so when Master 4 penned this ‘Octopus in the Shower’ it was love at first sight.
Today I traced (using the good old-fashioned stick it on the window method) the octopus onto black calico using a pencil. Then I asked Master 4 to choose colours from my embroidery thread box and stitched the picture in these.
It is now hanging in the kitchen to inspire me and make me smile.
Master 4 thinks it will end up in his room – I plan to win! I love it. I thought the circles around the long leg were the shower but these are apparently his sore knee. Master 4 has decided he is the octopus in the shower!
