BleuOiseau Creations, more than pictures

When I was in high school, I didn’t take Home Economics, not sure why.  I guess I am not really the domestic type…clean home-blah, cooking-blah, sewing-blah!  I wasn’t taught how to cook (my mom is a great cook) or sew (she didn’t do this) though I did have chores.  I was usually outside hanging with friends, doing cartwheels in the yard, playing in the dirt, you know, tomboy stuff.

A friend of my mom’s though did teach me how to cross stitch one year.  I did enjoy it and made lots of stuff.  In college, I didn’t do a lick of cross stitching. I actually haven’t picked up a needle until a couple of years ago when I was invited to join a knitting group.  I made a couple of scarves but never really got the hang of it.  Then my good friend Katie, came to knitting one night with an embroidery project.  I was fascinated and decided I would try that instead.  After purchasing a couple of books, Sublime Stitching and Doodle Stitching, I was ready to start!

I am completely hooked and have stitched a ton of stuff, tote bags, onesies, t-shirts, pants, and even paper!  I am currently working on a couple of onesies for a dear friend who is pregnant with her first child.  She is not finding out the sex of the baby so it is a challenge to find the right gender neutral pattern/colors.  I chose 3 little chicks for one and a mushroom house for the other because they own an organic mushroom farm 😀

It is pretty cool to say that this once serious tomboy can and does enjoy stitching though I refuse to cross stitch.
