You will all be pleased to know that I finished his stocking with a day to spare! Unfortunately, baby’s first Christmas Eve coincided with baby’s first cold. But I know we will always remember taking turns rocking him back to sleep that night, and being the first ones up to see the Christmas sun and drink hot chocolate. Little guy was such a good sport about all the present opening and photos, and he made the holiday so special, runny nose and all.
I didn’t finish his first ornament in time to get it on the tree, but I did finish it in December, so I’m counting it. I embroidered his name and the year on the back, and it may even be the beginning of a little tradition of ornament making each year…
I think Jon’s birthday will be robot themed this year. Little robot gift tags hung together in a banner, over a cake shaped like an iPad. These little guys seem like the friendly sort of robot, so you can trust them to guard a cake. Get them now in the shop!
I love this embroidery pattern. I feel like its says- you are my best friend and you are always there for me- but with farm animals instead of words.
I started this pattern while I was sick the other week. I still like to feel at least a little productive while I’m stuck on the couch. It reminded me of my younger sick days, and I would cross stitch while watching movies. Its just enough project to keep you busy, but not too much that it makes your fuzzy head hurt more.
Time for spring soirees and summer picnics. Whatever the occasion, these bunnies are party ready in their fancy dresses. I’m going to make a banner out of mine, and then host an afternoon tea. Find them now in the shop!
In the fall, Jon and I would end the day with a nice cup of chamomile tea while we curled up on the couch together. We found some chamomile seeds to plant this spring, and we are excited to see the dainty flowers grow soon. Send a comforting hello with a stitched up chamomile card, now in the shop!
Can you believe March is coming to an end? Its already time for those April showers that will bring us May flowers. But before the rain comes, I thought we could all use one more pinch of luck- in the form of clover embroidery. I made the four-leaf ones easy to find.
This little parade of desserts gets me. I haven’t practiced my fabric embroidery in a while, but I loved making this treat towel gift. It now lives in the home of someone who deserves a tiny dessert parade in their honor every day.
