Take it Further – February

I am so behind on this and we’re only 3 months into the challenge!
With a wedding in 3 months time, it’s only going to get worse.. but here it is:

[February’s Challenge](http://sharonb.wordpress.com/2008/02/01/take-it-further-challenge-february/) was ‘What are old enough to remember?’

My initial thoughts for this were based on childhood memories of summers by the seaside.. and then something happened, something unexpected..
First of all [Barnsley beat Liverpool in the FA Cup](http://www.suzical.co.uk/blog/suzical/yoooooouuu-reds) – which you may have noticed excited me 🙂

Now what I remember is standing in the cold, watching Barnsley and generally going home to defrost and cheer ourselves up!
and then we drew Chelsea in the Quarter final.. and beat them as well!
In the build up to the Chelsea match I saw [this article](http://football.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,2262802,00.html) in the Guardian and it brought back so many memories of past glories and randomly my next thought was that’s what I remember, I should do some thing that’s Barnsley..

and you don’t get more Barnsley than Toby Tyke! 🙂

Obviously this isn’t something I’ve drawn myself, but converting a picture to embroidery is challenging in itself!
Onwards now onto March.. noticing the small things in life, I have an idea for this – I might go microscopic and use some of the very large bag of tapestry wool which I was lucky enough to win at the Embroiderer’s guild last month!
