Cannot believe that I am finally going to post about this!!! Seriously, I’ve been waiting since September (the 9th to be exact)! I made this hoop for my beloved aunt Mirley that is in Brazil, it was supposed to be for her birthday not for Christmas…hahaha Her birthday was September 12th, I already knew that it wouldn’t get there in time…this embroidery was a tricky one, with some small details. But I never imagined that it would take almost three months to get there! I had already given up….same old story as this one. But gladly it arrived last Friday, I really wanted her to receive it, since she was the one who taught me how to embroider 🙂 And may I say that she was really, really happy with it….YAY!!!

Finally, finally, FINALLY!!! I’m posting about my first embroidery project! To tell you the truth, I’m kinda ashamed of writing about this, because then you’ll know how good I am at procrastinating things that I want to do…but as I always say, better late than never…right?! (maybe, I don’t know…haha). If I remember correctly, when I started this project, I didn’t even have this blog…and guys, I started this blog in 2014 😮 At the time, since I didn’t know the first thing about embroidery, I asked my beloved aunt Mirley to teach me the basics, since she’s the pro in the family. Looking at it today, I see that I started with a medium hard project, and since I always expect things to be perfect the first time I do something…it was doomed from the beginning, no wonder I procrastinated so many times, and finished it last year.

I cannot believe that I’m finally going to write about this, I’ve been waiting since August! 😮 😮 😮 It all started in the beginning of the year, I think it was March or April, when my brazilian friend Rodrigo asked me to do an embroidery hoop for his wife. Funny thing though, we’ve been friends since 2011, we met at IBM, he was my coach in the contracts team (poor thing, he had no way to escape from craziness…haha). When I left IBM in 2012, we lost contact for a while, but Whatsapp reunited us again, much easier than writing long e-mails every once in a while, right?! Since we have always lived in different cities, I never met his wife, I only know a few things about her… like she’s a very nice yoga instructor. Continue reading

I’m very happy to write this post and share the amazing work of my Brazilian friend Michel Demarchi (www.micheldemarchi.com.br / IG: @michel.demarchi). I met him when I used to work at IBM, and that my friends was in 2011. We weren’t in the same team, but we rode the same bus to and from work everyday, so one day we started talking. May I say that he is one of the funniest person that I know! It’s impossible not to laugh when you are around him, he is indeed one of a kind! One thing he is truly passionate about is jewelry, and that’s what he does on his free time.
