{My 1st Embroidery Project}

I started off with a towel. I put a pattern on each end. The
towels are really big. So, when it's folded and hanging on the
stove handle, you'll only be able to see one design at a time.


Here's my very first completed embroidery pattern. :)


I started off doing the stitches way wrong. The goal was to
make a straight line, I just didn't totally understand how to
do that. I started like this, which looks a little strange.


Then, I figured out the correct way, which looks so much
better. It was actually a lot faster, too.

I've already started on the second pattern and hope to have
the whole towel done soon. Maybe even by Sunday night.



I'm totally addicted to my fun, new hobby and was actually
a little disappointed I didn't have time for it today. However,
I'm thrilled to have organised the linen closet and the space
under our bathroom sinks. I'm off to meet up with David at
our fav new dinner spot, Efes Turkish Cuisine. Bon weekend!

totally cute Sam, I love it!!! I like to embroider while I watch football with my husband...I don't need to see every single second of the game, but I can watch enough to know what's going on...I've gotten a lot of projects done this season, lol!
