So I've really liked embroidering for a while now, and I decided to go ahead and try it out myself!  My 3 year old LOVES My Neighbor Totoro, so I decided to embroider the picture of Totoro that's the Studio Ghibli logo for him.  It hangs on the wall in his room, and we're both very happy with it!

That turned out perfect!  I love how the thread matches the hoop and how its such a pretty blue color.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

Thanks!  I had bought the blue hoop as a replacement for my wooden one my son killed, but liked the color so much that I wanted to embroider Totoro in a similar color, and then I just didn't want to take it out! Smiley

That is awesome!
I love Totoro too and I'm an adult. Actually, all of Miyazakis movies are fantastic.
