Simply Sublime

I have been on the look out for something I could accomplish while plopped on the couch catching up on my Tivo.  While looking for another book on Amazon it recommended the book Sublime Stitching.  How can Mr. Amazon computer read my mind?  It tells me "you also might like this..." and I say... "well, actually I do!  How kind of you to suggest it.  And thanks for the free super saver shipping too!"  As soon as it arrived I went over to my mom's house and borrowed (stole forever) all of her neatly organized embroidery thread, hoops, needles and scissors.  I then grabbed some of the girls clothes and started stitching.  I promise you, the book makes it soooo easy and gives you the most fun and funky iron on patterns!  I fully admit to having no patience whatsoever and questioned if I could even stand the slow, quiet craft.  But after an episode of Project Runway, and two skirts nearly finished, I am hooked.  Off to find some more things to pretty up!

  4. I love how quick embroidery is. There is a blog that has lots of lovely vintage patterns on flckr. I will try to remember which one it is I think Floresita. Anyway I used one for a little bluebird I did not to long ago. (You are in our prayers every night too :) )

  5. SO CUTE!!! I'm inspired....I do want to pretty up some stuff, too. Will look into getting that book (if it's not too expensive)! I think you'd love the stitchery patterns at Wee Wonderfuls, if you haven't already found that blog (http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com). Enjoy!
