An Embroidery Piece Personalized for Me!

Filed under no i really do love ohio, stuff i like

Liesi over at Too Crewel held a contest for a custom embroidery piece recently, and I was the lucky winner! I’d been slobbering over her Etsy shop nonstop, especially the United States pillow and the paper airplane hoop, so I asked her to combine the two ideas for me to make this:

It’s the U.S., with a heart where Ohio is and a star where New York is and an airplane trail connecting the two. <3 <3 <3!

She also did a piece for my friend Dishy that involves the entire family, the pet bird, the chickens, the rats, and the dog. If I never wanted to cram a chicken coop into the corner of my 900-square-foot apartment before (yeah, right), I sure do now.

Talk to Liesi to get a piece of your own!

    LOVE IT!!

    Liesi better be getting orders out of this, Katie. I got over 10,000 on the Valentine’s Day post yesterday alone. If I owned an actual business I might be getting a dime out of it too. Damn.

  5. Christy says:

    10,000 hits. Not orders. LOL

  6. I’m so glad you got it and that you like it!

    Sooooo pretty! You should be come the world’s most foremost collector of Ohio-themed items.

    Speaking of state pride, we recently watched an episode of Stephen Fry in America on Netflix where he talked to a guy who had a GIANT tattoo of the state of Kentucky on his butt, and it made me think about how much you really do need an Ohio tattoo. ON YOUR FACE. (Okay. Not really on your face. But somewhere.)

    what a great piece of art! i love your idea and her take on it!

  9. Nice!
    Although, you know… I totally sewed on a button once, though, so… (okay, no, no I didn’t. But I almost got a needle threaded though. Okay, no, no I didn’t…)
