thursday = embroidery

today I have an old finished project to share. I made these hangings for my sister {hi cill!} for her birthday last year:



I used the wee wonderfuls' free pattern available here.

{on a side note - hilary's ribbon doll is soooo dang cute!}

anyway...the edges & hangers are ric rac {which my mom helped me with - okay, she did all the sewing...I confess!} & they are backed with a green & white flannel fabric. my family teased me that they seemed to be pot-holders but they're just decorative. she always decorates her house so nicely for xmas and since her birthday is at the beginning of dec. it was fun to give her something she could use for the holiday.

and of course I would never forget the weekly embroidery transfer! today is one I found cut and loose in a pile of misc. transfers:

enjoy!

OOOh, thanks for the neat mushroom transfer. It reminds me of the "nature drawings" I used to do as a kid.

Ohhhhhh! I've had this same transfer (cut and loose) for years and years now. I've never stitched it before, but now I just might have to.
Thanks!
