She was pretty excited.

I don’t blame her – it turned out very well.  It looks even sharper in person. 🙂

I’m so creative with my post title today, aren’t I?

Anyway, I decided last weekend when I found one of my mom’s old embroidery hoops that I should take up embroidery again.  My grandma gave me an embroidery kit once for Christmas when I was a kid and, though I started one of the samplers, I never finished.

I bought some embroidery floss and a fat square the other day when Miss Tadpole and I went to pick out the fabric for her home ec. project.  I don’t have a pattern yet, but I was thinking something in a fleur de lis would be pretty.  Of course, since I bought green and red floss, maybe I should stick with a holly and berry theme?  That would be pretty too.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
