"Embroidery 101"

These are some fun pictures

I have decided to pick up an old favorite craft..
I first learned to embroider at the age of 11 years old.
In our church class as young girls... We were called the
"Merrie Miss".. I had to embroider a scripture on a banner
that we made with all our medallions we earned.

I picked up this book "Doodle Stitching" by Aimee Ray..

I am excited to get started stitching some fun things. has lots of great photos of this great

Have a Lovely weekend.. I am going to go watch my
Son, "Ryan" perform in "High school Musical 2" tonight.!
More news to share on Monday!!!
