thursday = embroidery


Oh wow! My embroidered lampshade was featured on ohdeedoh {which is the nursery blog offspring of apartment therapy}. This is so cool & I’m very honored – thank you & welcome new visitors!

Also today for embroidery thursday, I want to share a lovely gift I was given by one of my mom’s friend – Geraldine.


She purchased & began this bedspread some time ago and has passed it on to me to finish & use because she knew I was a stitcher. Isn’t that sweet?!


I love the colors & the design. I think it will make a wonderful spring/summer cover for the bed. I’ve never done cross-stitch before but since this one is already stamped with the design I think I can handle it. I’m so excited to continue the beautiful work that’s already been put into this!

Finally, here are today’s embroidery transfers for your stitching enjoyment:


{the deer/Chihuahua hybrid is my favorite from this collection}

{although the squirrel is a very close second!}

Have a nice evening all…

Fantastic lampshade! I could definitely see it done with numbers, too!
