I LOVE Embroidery!!!

I am having so much fun with my hand embroidery! This is a pillowcase that I did while watching the olympics at night! It is so relaxing!! This is a pre-stenciled pillowcase that I bought at Michaels. I did'nt know that there was a color chart inside for the floss. I just picked the thread that looked like the picture, and what I thought looked cute! It came with 2 pillowcases so I am wanting to make the matching one! I also bought another pattern from bigB! It is a pattern set with the sweetest cupcakes!!! Now I want to make a little dish towel with some of those cupcakes!!

I am going to have to put the embroidery to the side while I finish up that purple baby quilt! It has a deadline so I have to get on it!

I asked Cade and Joey if they wanted a pillowcase with pink flowers and they both said "NO!" That's ok, they both get really bad nose bleeds anyway!!

Tuesday is my birthday so I am going out for the day with my sweet husband!

Have a great day!

Your pillow case is beautiful. I enjoy embroidery too, but am not good at it.
Enjoy your day with your Sweetheart!
