Little Stitches




Did I tell you guys that I decided to randomly take up embroidery? These are my efforts so far. I've been at this point for roughly 2 months because I need one more color of embroidery floss and keep forgetting to pick it up, whoops. I'm kind of loving embroidery and it's much easier than I thought it would be.

Right now my apartment is a disaster. It pretty much looks like a craft hurricane blew through. Tony has been calling me a hoard, I argue that I'm not a hoarder since I'm making stuff for Etsy, not just to hold on to. He has conceded that I may not be an actual hoarder, but I am surely in some kind of subcategory. So, I should probably finish the 10 half done projects on my living room floor and in the office, before I start anything new, but that won't stop me from thinking of ideas...Here are some patterns off of Etsy that I particularly like, but I'm excited to make my own as well.

Palmistry pattern by cozyblue
