ukes not nukes

I recently inherited a beautiful collection of embroidery thread from a dear friend. Soon after, armed with nearly every color I could ever want, I was bopping around on the internet looking for potential designs to create and stumbled across this etsy listing from Fly FIbers. It was love at first sight.

With Fly Fibers currently on a break and hundreds of color options swirling around in my head, I decided to make it a portrait of my own ukulele. After a day of carefully color matching the wood's dark tones and warm highlights I dove in. Two days later I'm trying to find the perfect spot to hang it up.

Now I just need another ukulele so I can embroider a portrait of it.
