In the past two weeks my husband's grandparents have celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and his brother has gotten married. I made each couple an embroidery to commemorate their big day. I'm still new to embroidery, so my stitches still need some work...don't judge too harshly!

For his grandparent's I made this re-take on a classic "just married" wedding car. I found the idea on Pinterest and just loved it. They loved it too  Smiley





For my brother in law and his new wife I made this hearts carved in a tree embroidery. I got the free pattern from a blog I found on Pinterest.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Adorable! Too funny, I was just last night talking to my husband about taking a road trip for our anniversary and putting that on our car. I must be channeling your awesome work!  Cheesy

These are both fab and your stitching is wonderful, I never would have known you were new to it. The Still Married piece is my favorite, so sweet, and such an accomplishment! Congratulations to both of the happy couples!
