By the time 2012 rolled around, I had seriously lost my needlework mojo; I only completed two needlework projects. I did, however, get interested in Zentangle towards the end of 2012 and that interest carried over into 2013.
APR. 2012 — FOXY SWEETHEARTS: By this point, I’d embroidered pillowcases for both my husband and my son, so next up was embellishing a pillowcase for myself. This design is from Urban Threads.
JULY 2012 — INFINITY MARIO & LUIGI: This was a fun stitchy gift. I can’t find the link to the pattern (which I think was a freebie), but it can probably be found by rabbit-hole’ing google or pinterest.
NOV. 2012 — “ART EVERY DAY” MONTH—>ZENTANGLE: These were my two favorites of the projects I drew during “art every day” month. The Cats & Dogs design is actually an Urban Threads embroidery pattern, but it worked great for zentangle. The second design was free-handed and lightly water-colored.
