Hello, all! I've browsed Crafter for years and finally decided it's time to make an account and start participating. I'm not sure if it's customary to only post one project at a time, but I'm going to go ahead and post a few of my favorites. You can see more at my Flickr embroidery album: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alyssakai/sets/72157622584858500/
I've been embroidering for a few months and love it so much! I took it up because I wanted to make something for my second anniversary (second anniv. gift is supposed to be cotton or china). I soon fell in love with Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching and have used quite a few of her designs.
The girl and boy are from the Black Apple set (ordered from sublimestitching.com).
Thankfully my husband loves it! The colors took a while to plan and I'm very happy with it
For the little girls in my family I framed customized embroideries for Christmas. The patterns are Cute Little Heads (also from SS)--I picked each one especially for the little girl and tried to match their hair color.
I was so sad to part with them but heard the girls loved them! They went to three different homes. The font I used for the names is Little Days from dafont.com
These cards were also difficult to send off because I loved them so much! Everyone enjoyed theirs, though
I lined each with a corresponding wrapping paper. More pictures of the individual cards are in the Flickr album linked above.
