Dabble, dabble, dabble


Well I might have found a new addiction. You were right. Embroidery is such a relaxing little hobby, and oh so satisfying. I find myself just staring at my work, running my fingers over the stitches, and envisioning what else I can add to it. I'm looking forward to hanging a few finished pieces in my bedroom. 


Slowly, but surely making progress..




Maybe I've sparked your interest? Here's video links to all of the fancy stitches I used. Yes they're a little cheesy,  but they do the job.




And some of you graciously passed along some great blog recommendations. Thank you so much! Check out the comment section for some great links. I fell in love with Mary's recommendation, Wild Olive. So trendy and cute, and her pictures are awesome. 


Happy stitching! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

Where did you get your blog template?! I want a similar one! I would obviously change all the pictures and colors around, but I've always had trouble with this!
