I made this to remind myself while sewing/doing crafty stuff, that you can't be perfect all the time so don't worry about it!
Blog post on it is here: http://makingitwell.blogspot.co.nz/2013/10/we-all-make-mistakes.html
I'm a newbie to embroidery so it's pretty basic. Heh.

Any thoughts on cool stuff to do to the hoop/presentation before hanging? I'm thinking of leaving it plain.

Oh my goodness! That is too adorable! I think leaving it plain would be fine. You don't want to take away from the work.

I can't believe you are a newbie. You're a natural!

Hahaha, I think it is fun! And great stitching too!

I think you should leave it plain too, it makes the embroidery pop out!

I like just a little ribbon to cover the screw on top, other than that, it's perfect!!

Thanks so much! I'm touched by your comments! bethntim, that's a great idea to add a ribbon to the top! I definitely have to do that, and I think I'll leave it plain in the hoop- thanks everyone for your feedback! Smiley
