thursday = embroidery

I've got another finished project to share! {I'm enjoying being so productive...I hope I can keep this momentum going!}





I scanned this pattern into the computer & took it apart digitally so I could rebuild it for the collage.

{now I'm obsessed with finding more patterns to do this to...}

and...today's embroidery pattern is a Laura Wheeler:




finally, Flor says it perfectly here in regards to the Vogart/Plaid situation.

I like the blue dress pattern more then the red one although they are both quite pretty.
