I started embroidering this summer because I kept seeing so many cool projects on Craftster. I think it's really relaxing and even though I picked up an old Coats and Clark 100 stitches book and I should be learning, all I want to do is split stitch!

I did these bibs for my best friend and my cousin who both had baby girls over the summer...

and this birdie...the swallow is my favorite pattern from the kit...I've also put it on an apron and a throw pillow.  Cheesy

Nice work, I especially love the colors you chose.  The swallow pattern is pretty sweet.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very cute. I really like the colors you picked.

Gorgeous!  It is very relaxing, isn't it?  I find that I'm in a much better frame of mind if I can find a little time to stitch each day, even if it's only 30mins or so.

Thanks everyone! I really like the combo of red and turquoise or aqua. I find it so relaxing that I spent much of my vacation in July embroidering in the sun.  Smiley
