I thought I’d change things up a bit and post about some embroidery projects. I’ve been working on both here and there for months. And still both of them are just a tad incomplete.

First up is the little gnomie girl. The pattern was purchased at a little sweetness. Love her shop! So much in fact that Emma’s second birthday party was based on her little red riding hood illustration.

Isn’t she just darling? As with most of my other embroidery projects, I’m still not quite sure what to do with it when I’m done. So in the meantime, I will just enjoy looking at it. 🙂

Next up is this cute little vintage cat. I found this pattern at the flickr group for vintage embroidery transfers, hoop love vintage transfers.

I’m thinking of making Emma a doll quilt. One day. And the plan is to use this little kitty as one of the blocks. We’ll see when and if that ever happens!

I’ve really been enjoying the art of hand embroidery. To date I’ve only completed three projects: the first being the mushroom fabric that I embroidered with Emma’s name, the second a Christmas gift for a special someone, and the third a fun gnome and mushroom pattern!

This latest project was so much fun! I tinted the illustration with crayons using this tutorial from Aimee Ray of little dear tracks. The pattern was 100% free and can be found on her flickr page here.

I just love the way it turned out! And I enjoyed every bit of making it. I have a few more patterns, some purchased, some not, that I cannot wait to stitch up! I just need to figure out what to do with all of these pieces. Might I see some quilting in my future? If only I wasn’t so intimidated by it!
