thursday = embroidery

my pre-ordered copy of embroidered effects arrived!


I'm excited to try several of the projects but I think this one will be my first:


but first I have to finish a stalled project - if I ever finish & post it you'll get why that is actually a really funny choice of words...

maybe if I had a chef & maid I'd have more time to make things! who am I kidding - I barely cook or clean as it is & still can't seem to make stuff...well, anyhow here's a little chef & maid for you from me :)


happy stitching!

I had to laugh at the chef/maid comment. I'm right there with you. I feel like I barely have any time to work on making things, but it's not like I'm spending that time dusting and mopping either. It's amazing how the just disappears anyway. ;)

ooooo I'd love to have Swallows on my jeans... or anywhere else for that matter, sounds like an awesome plan :D

Isn't the new book beautiful? That pair of jeans is one of the projects I stitched for the book! I just loved that idea, and can't wait to do it to a pair of my own soon too.

Oh,believe me, I'm the same way (about cooking,cleaning,etc.). But, it would be really sweet to have a maid & chef!

Thanks so much for the little extra. They're adorable!

XoXo,

Both the chef and maid are really cute. Where do you find these patterns of cute little people? I'm having a blast stitching them.
