Happy Sweet Day!!
Hope that you have been having a lovely week so far! I have been working on a little embroidery project for my dear friends who just had a precious baby girl last week!! This was on my mind to make, but I just had to wait until she was born! And, I will actually be seeing her today! Yay!
I thought this little vintage lamb pattern was so sweet and I loved all the pretty flowers. This had quite a lot of french knots and they have always been my least favorite stitch, until I came across this awesome tutorial from Sublime Stitching, and it finally clicked on how to make a real knot. I was thrilled to be able to make a true french knot, and now I kinda enjoy doing them! Crazy, I know! ;)
The little lambie came from this vintage Vogart embroidery pattern booklet that I bought recently. That kitty and the honey bears are so darn cute! I can't wait to have a reason to stitch them up. It was a little hard doing the face, and I ended up having to use one strand of embroidery floss. So, maybe I can just stitch some of these up for practice! ;)
I added some pretty vintage lace to the top to give it a vintage touch, and it is sweetly wrapped and ready to give to baby Naomi! Next on my list is to make my second barn block and work on some hexie flowers, along with some other cute vintage embroideries. My ripple blanket is going to have to wait a little longer for a cooler day. Are you working on any crafty goodness?
Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week and weekend!!
