I'm back from my trip to Houston! My sister's wedding was really beautiful and since I was named the "official" photographer, I have plenty of pretty pictures to share. I haven't gone through and edited them all yet, so you'll just have to wait a few days. Instead, here are a couple of pictures of recent embroidery projects! These are both things I gave as gifts: now that all holidays and special events are over, I can freely post them here.
Above: I added some hedgehog excitement to a pair of place mats. That was my wedding present to Sarah and Tim. (You two better looove them!) And below is the Christmas present I made for Tim, my new brother-in-law. It's a combination stuffed animal / ornament thing. This was the gift I mailed off before photographing; I finally got my chance this past weekend. I had so much fun making the owl -- embroidering on felt is kind of neat! All patterns are from Sublime Stitching.
These last couple of months have been very busy with holidays and traveling, and I feel like my new year is just now getting started (even though January is almost halfway over)! I know I didn't make any resolutions, but I would like to start trying some new things with my blog. Specifically: widening it, using larger pictures, and also I'd like to make a watermark for my photos and start using it all the time. Anyone have any tips on how to go about doing those things?
Hope you're all having a wonderful week so far!
