Silly Project....

I have always been fascinated by the school girl alphabet samplers.  They make me pause and wonder whose hands stitched the letters, houses, etc.  So, I decided to make something that in years to come when sitting on a shelf in a thrift shop will, hopefully, cause someone to stop and reflect about my hands working, and my mind creating.  I am doing a 'bio' piece for the year 2014.  Taking something that impacts or reflects my month, making a small reflective piece, and eventually sewing them all together, I am creating a time capsule of my year.  There will be some embellishments, etc., after all the pieces are sewn together and I think I am going to frame it.  We shall see.  I am halfway through the year and who knows what the rest of the pieces will be.  It is fun to work on and hopefully interesting enough that no one will throw it away before the 100 years I would like it to last.  I do have my delusions...LOL
