At the beginning of the month I joined the others at Squam in Double Dog Daring myself for March. As I wrote about here, I decided I wanted this to be the month that I learned how to embroider. And I did! Still about 10 days left in the month and I am almost done with my first little set of patterns that I wanted to accomplish. The patterns are from the Doodle Bug Stitch Along that took place about a year ago.
My first little embroidered people
My little mushroom house
A little tree stump house
And I'm almost finished with my grandfather gnome.
It is so fun and portable! For these little patterns I think I'm going to make a mini quilt to hang on the wall. Although each one is different in size so I'm not sure how that'll turn out.
Next up I want to embroider a table runner for our dining room table. Something with bright, cheerful springy flowers. To put vases of fresh cut flowers on!
