so I have always wanted to learn how to embroider, but just haven’t gotten around to it. well this week I began a small project. I discover this website that sold embroidery kits/ patterns. it is located here. I kinda got lost on the site for a bit.
well I downloaded some pics and transferred one onto some cloth. probably totally illegal so I will note that I did not design this at all. and then I began my entry into embroidery. it is super easy.
well here is the finished framed product…
it looks great. I do think I need to reframe it, but I still love it.
I finally did it! I completed the notso baby blanket I began for my goose 2 years ago!
it is a wonderful crochet ripple blanket inspired by a couple amazing knit blankets from the purl bee found here and here. at the time I began I did not knit. I do now so maybe the next big project will be a knitted blanket.
okay the yarn: I love this yarn from hobby lobby in orange, burnt orange, yellow, cream, grey beard, limelight, and forest green. I worked up to the forest green then back to the orange. the pattern was just a stitch from my stitch encyclopedia a basic ripple stitch.
and finally … tada….
it looks so good on his bed. it is truly perfect!
what to do now….
so happy Valentina’s day! I am so prepared this week it is awesome!
tonight I completed the goose’s cards for his class and I made cards for my totally awesome friends.
for the goose’s cards I went to this great site and kinda followed what she did with the idea. there is also a free printable.
I use blow pops because what kid doesn’t like a blow pop.
they turned out really cute!
next I finished my valentine day cards. they turned out great. I was a bit skeptical at first but I love how they look. a modge podge of paper…
totally my style!
