thursday = embroidery

I’m happy today to be able to share a finished embroidery project that I’ve been itching to show but didn’t want to spoil the giving of it as a gift.


I made this for a dear friend who is like a sister to me, hence the banner on the inside of the box:


The girls are from this Japanese embroidery book {which was a gift from my real sister – hi Sue!}…


And of course, what would embroidery day be without the weekly transfer?!


I thought this little guy would be cute on a baby’s bib:


And then there’s this guy:


Who I couldn’t resist providing an alternative version of:



Tomorrow's Friday - yay!

{p.s. So glad so many of you enjoyed the coloring book images yesterday...if you do stitch any of them up please send me a link so I can see - thanks!}

What a great gift! I love the way you embroidered the girls. I have that same book, and the girls/kids in that book just about kill me with their cuteness.
