Rocking the whole embroidery thing!

I can't even tell you how excited I am! This day really rocks!
Aimee Ray featured a small photo of my embroidery work on her blog! If you click the link to go to her page, it's the one on the bottom right of the collage.

As you know, this year one of my resolutions was to learn to embroider (you can see my previous two attempts here and here). So far I've been doing really good. I joined Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitch Along and have been submitting photos of my work to flikr. My interpetation of this last weeks pattern turned out as follows:

As always, improvement is needed, but overall I am so happy with the way it came out! I think for only my third attempt, this rocks! There were a lot of really good submissions to the flikr group this week.

I also won the Larks Crafts contest and shall be recieving an awesome embroidery set in the mail next week as a prize. Okay, so I don't really know if it's awesome or not. But I don't really care! It could be two skeins of 37cent embroidery floss and a couple of needles and I'd be tickled pink! I never win anything!

Needless to say, today is really making me smile.

'til next time...


  1. ooh Congrats! I've always wanted to pick that up did you just start with a kit or just went along and looked at pictures of this done? You should provide a tutorial for eventually

  2. Thank you Katie Bug! I actually ordered a book off Amazon and started there. It's such an inexpensive hobby! A skein of embroidery thread only costs about 37cents. And it's kind of addicting once you get started... You should try it - I bet you'd be really good at it!

  3. I will have to research this then. This can fill my time on school breaks


Your comments simply make my day!
