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 Smiley

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 Smiley  I lined each with a corresponding wrapping paper.  More pictures of the individual cards are in the Flickr album linked above.

I love the anniversary present! I've been married for 2 years (in March) and we are doing the traditional themed presents as well - but I couldnt' think of anything for cotton. This will be perfect! Robot family portrait embroidered on cotton! Smiley

The girls' gifts are just perfect. Brilliant idea!

The cards are too cute! I can see why you're having trouble parting with them - I would, too!

Those are all so super cute! I love the little girls. What a great idea!

That first one is just TOO dang cute. I love that she's standing on books. I also really like how you embroidered you and your husbands name next to each one!

These are lush!  Especally the girls' heads, that's a great idea for presents.

Wow, what great ways to use the patterns. I'm a big fan of the Black Apple set but have yet to tackle them. Maybe I'll give it a go....
