Tee hee - just channeling my early 90s rapper vixen there with a little Sir Mix-a-Lot ... which is totally ironic because I don't really like rap music. There was even a time when I thought that song was totally offensive. But it seems I've mellowed with age because now it just "cracks" me up! (Sorry, I'm genetically punny.)
No, today I'm not talking about the junk in my trunk ... I'm talking about background fabric - specifically what I use for embroidery.
For example, remember my Daisychain Sampler?
I used a very subtle print as the background for my stitches. Not loud enough to detract from my hours and hours of embroidering, but just enough to ... you know ... smile quietly at you.
I am using this fun trick for my "Little Stitches" project too.
All different colors, styles, personalities ... all subtle ... but all add a little extra something to the individual blocks as well as the overall design.
Told ya I got back. ;)
