I embroidered this onto a toaster bag for my parents' anniversary (but I won't bore everyone with the whole story behind that, LOL).   Cheesy  I used an Urban Threads design with some pretty basic stitches: satin stitch for the crusts, eyes, mouth, and hearts, and backstitch for everything else.  This was also my first time trying crayon tinting - mainly because I was too lazy to use a fill stitch of some sort for those vast expanses of peanut butter and jam - and I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.  It was well-received, and is now a key part of breakfast preparation in the household.

Thanks for looking!

It's a brand spankin' new blog!  http://wittychild.wordpress.com/
