About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

So I had this music analysis project due. Three or so weeks to do it. I dont like doing things the normal way, on a computer... or anything like that. I would rather Cross stitch it out. so I did. It took around 25 hours, but I got it done on time!


The day he assigned the project, I went out, bought some cotton fabric, and thread. and started sewing all the measure lines.
I proceeded to put the measure numbers in.

Stitched the first couple phrases,

started writing in the important information

Thats the first movement done, all including the golden mean.
All the phrasing done
Ironing out the wrinkles.

So glad its done! When I get it back I will frame it. of course. I also left a red thread attached to a needle, so he could grade it! Im hoping for an A!
