It is another gray rainy day in the Sunshine State, so I guess our chances of drought this year are lessened, but it makes it hard to take photos. I have been busy working on the curtains for A’s kitchen. I had to plan the placement of a row of 4″ robots across the bottom of the draperies, and I haven’t had much luck with water-erasable pens. The idea of using painter’s tape occurred to me, and wow, it is working great. You can see in the picture above how the lines for horizontal and vertical placement are marked on the blue tape.
These embroidery designs are from the Embroidery Library:
These designs are stitching up very nicely, though since they are filled in completely, the stitching takes a bit of time. I’m going to try and stitch two robots every day so that I don’t get tired of the whole project and can have time to stitch other things.
The colors of the robots will match my daughter’s retro/vintage extremely brightly painted kitchen. The cupboards are yellow and orange and the counter tops are a rusty red. I don’t know what the former owner was thinking, but these things are easy to paint over in the future. Until then, we are just going to have fun with it by adding robots.
