Anyways, first up is some embroidery! I found this crazy cute company, Red Letter Day Stitches, which publishes holiday embroidery patterns. I am in desperate need of holiday decorations, so I thought it would be cute to have a spot on a wall where I rotate out different embroidery decorations, based on the season/holiday. When I found the company, they had just released Raise a Glass, their St. Patrick's Day pattern. I was totally on board! Without further ado, here is my finished project!
Once I purchased the pattern, which was only $4, I received a pdf of the instructions and the design. I think in order to get the picture sizing right, you are supposed to print it out, THEN trace it onto the fabric. For some reason, I felt the need to skip that step and just traced it from my computer screen, ugh! My picture ended up just a hair too big to fit nicely in a 6 inch hoop. Whoops.
I participated in their stitch-a-long, which was nice because as I mentioned at the beginning of this post stitch-a-longs keep me on track. Well, guess what! I was wonderfully surprised because I ended up winning a pattern subscription! How awesome is that?!
Next up is the Bunny Hoop, which was just released today. Isn't it just too cute to handle?!! I can't wait to get home to start it!!!! This time, I'm going to PRINT the pdf first!
