I love when I finish off a design I've planned, but my gosh! Stitching lettering is SO tough. Spacing, sizing, straight lines... I had no idea how stressful it could be! I'm reasonably new to embroidery so I'll keep on practicing. I'm not that happy with this, but I can't imagine starting again after that stress haha. I'm planning an Autumny project next. (I am SO happy it's now officially Autumn, the best season), lots of golds and orange and a little Emily Bronte quote. Do you embroider? Whats the toughest part for you?


  1. I actually just bought a book on embroidering. I haven't tried it yet, but can't wait to! I love your whale! So fun!

    And I just had to share... how amazing is this one?? ...

    I also love the ones in this post on floral fabrics:

    1. Embroidery is so fun you should definitely try it!

      I love the wedding gift one, pretty cute!! I'm thinking of doing something similar for my brother and his upcoming wedding.


    2. I love homemade gifts. they're so personal. I love how Kate from Signed with an Owl used the wedding invitation for the embroidery piece. So lovely. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Lovely! I too have just begun to try my hand at embroidery -- it's fun and exciting to do a new art form, but not as easy as I had imagined!


Thank you so much for leaving your thoughts. I love to hear what you all think and I do read every single one soooo if you have a question, feel free to ask!
