With all the stitching I've been doing lately, I started looking around for embroidery blogs to follow for inspiration, and I hit paydirt!  I just love feeling stitchy and as soon as I saw the most recent post about the stitchalong for this month, I knew I had to jump on it.




It's not my best work, because I was so eager to start that I didn't use a stabilizer or even transfer the pattern--I just sat at my computer with the design image enlarged.  It only took me about an hour and a half from start to finish, and even though I ended up using colors outside my usual wardrobe palette, I just love it!

I love feeling stitchy!  I saw that pattern and haven't created it myself but do love it.  You did a great job using their pattern and I love that its on clothing so it's something you can show off anywhere.  I am definitely inspired

This is beautiful! I love the pattern and color choices. Even if you think it's messy, I think it is wonderful! Also... matches your hair which is also very cute Smiley

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I really love the design and the way you stitched it, and the few flaws is nice, it gives it a nice touch
