cubicle wall art

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

My friend Leslie gifted me lots of crafty supplies – fabric, binding, lace, ribbon, sheeps wool – all kinds of stuff. So when I started messing around with the table runner thing she gave me, I decided it would be hers. (I posted about it here and here). She has had a major adjustment or two in her life recently so I stitched the beginning of my favorite quote on it. The original idea was to stitch the whole thing but I decided it would be too cluttered. It will spruce up her cubicle wall nicely, don’t you think?

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over,

It became a butterfly.

    You should add a title=”” attribute to the bird that says “RSS FEED” or something, so that when you hover on it you’ll know what it is …

      Good call – I had the alt set up but it is actually title for hover on.

    Thank you for this. You gave this to me when I needed it the most. You are thoughtful and talented. I have it in my new “Home”. As my boss told me, I’m back in the fold. 🙂
