I embroidered a thing! My boyfriend loves the song "Birdhouse in Your Soul" by They Might Be Giants, so for Valentine's Day, I embroidered and framed a bit from the song for him:


(not actually crooked, just the photo)

I'm very pleased with it. : ) It's all backstitch cause I'm a novice at embroidery and that's mostly what I know how to do. The font is called "Little Days" and can be found on dafont.com.

Very cute. I'm sure your boyfriend appreciated it!  This is a special song for my mom and I.  I've wanted to stitch something up, but couldn't decide on a good image for it; this one is very sweet.   
Keep up with the embroidery so we can see more of your work.  Smiley
