Double Dog Daring

Each month at the Squam blog everyone is invited to name a goal they want to do for the month. They "Double Dog Dare" you to choose something to focus on for the month. Either exercise, cleaning, organizing, creativity, food, whatever it is that you need a little push and friendly cheering on to accomplish.

This is the first month I've joined in and considering it's only March 8 I'm pretty darn proud of myself! I've had a basket of embroidery things all put together (along with a pattern to try) for a few weeks now. I wrote over at Squam about how I want to learn to embroider.

In comes Amy who volunteered to teach me and give me tips. So we got together and I can now check "learn to embroider" off my "want to do" list.

 This was my window this morning. And honestly the hardest part of it. Trying to get the pattern from paper onto my fabric. But I did it.

And this is just a few seconds ago. It's not perfect but I think it's so cute and I'm wicked proud of it! 

The pattern is from a Doodle Stitch along from last year. There are 4 patterns and I think I might make them all up and make them into a mini quilt. 

I now think I need to create an embroidery board on Pintrest! 


  1. Wow, you got so much done today! {Is that what it's like to have a child who naps?!?!} I am so super impressed! And yes, you totally could have learned how to do this on your own but how much more fun to have an in-person nudge? Thanks so much for having us over--it's so nice to visit with another adult during the day!!

  2. WOW!!

    I am SO inspired-- thrilled, did I mention inspired?!!!

    girl, you are DOING IT!!

    xoxo, e
