I always have more than one project going at a time. That way I don't get too burnt out or obsess too much over one particular thing. I'll admit sometimes I'm bad about it. I've cast aside a project or two for longer than I should have, but I always go back to them. I love having a fresh perspective on an old project.
I thought I'd share the inspiration for a new embroidery project I'm starting. It'll get added to the 3 others I'm working on right now (and to hundreds of items on my to-do list.)
Like almost everything else, I thrifted this book years ago. I love the ultra 70s coloration and typography, mainly because it doesn't fit the mental image I have of the Capone days- at all. Maybe I've watched The Untouchables a few too many times (wait, not possible) but I just don't think "bright" when I think of Prohibition Era gangsters. I'd like to reproduce it with these colors, just because it looks silly to me.
And talk about riding on the coat-tails of others, "The New Bestseller from the Publisher of THE GODFATHER". They could come up with anything better than, hey we've published other good books!?
