I made this for a friend to use as a patch or something. Perhaps "Ready Made" readers will recognize this, I think it was in the last issue or second to last. The image is the same, but in the magazine, the words are under the picture. I botched that part, so I freehanded it in the picture. It says, "Simplicity is the Key to Successful Living".

I like the image and the sentiment. Hope my friend does too!

One more for good measure.

Yup, just some cheapo craft felt. It was my first time stitching on it and I didn't enjoy it very much cuz it stretched on the hoop and was a little bit "fuzzy" and pulls through the stitches.
