Hand Embroidery Madness

Well, I am recently obsessed with hand embroidery. I don't know how I got here, but here I am. I bought an embroidery hoop yesterday. Sketched a cartoon monster last night. Sketched it again this morning with a fabric marker on an old green pillowcase and went to work. I mostly used a split stitch which I learned from a youtube video. I'm super geeked b/c I can add details to all sorts of my clothes, the boys' clothes, tote bages, etc. And it's wicked easy!

what boy would not love that anywhere? I am impressed. And you can learn anything from youtube, wow. Mary loves robots so i bought some of those robot doodles from someone and made her note cards with clever sayings. so girls of mine might like this idea too.

These are a few of my favorite things...
