Anyone can embroider! This is what I do:

1) Think of a cool quote
2) "Learn to embroider" by finding online instructions and doing some stitches, maybe 3-4 stitches per technique until you get one that basically looks like the photo
3) Find a cool font on the computer and print out the chosen phrase at the right size to look great on the hoopla!
4) Realize that the only way to do the font will be with the hardest stitch from phase 2
5) Whatever, this is the best font, it'll be fine - full steam ahead!
6) Make a mistake about every three stitches, which is awesome because the stitch is linked so you can't tell it's wrong until three stitches later. Bonus: you will learn lots of new curse words during this step.
7) Pull three stitches out, correct the mistake, and re-do the stitches
*repeat steps 6 and 7 as necessary
8.) Odds and ends: knot and cut threads, re-seat in the hoopla at a nice angle, etc.

If you have followed these instructions correctly, you should find that the project took roughly 4x longer than your original estimate and you know several new curses. Your perfectionism may or may not allow you to look directly at the finished item.

Congratulations! See, you can embroider!

Embroidered text escapes me. Haha I can maybe follow an outline, but that about it. I'd love to get better at it, but I need the time first Smiley

This is fantastic!!  And SO true!!

I received from MeganCrafts and finally had the chance to open her parcel today!  I'm so in love with everything she sent!  I feel totally spoiled!! 

First we have this super cute cassette tape zip pouch!  I've always wanted one and now I have one of my favoritest books ever! 


(and the view from the top, with yummy looking chocolate!!)


I literally squeed when I opened these two!!  I think they're Katniss and Peeta!  (woo team Peeta!!!) I mean these guys are so super adorable!!


The books look really good too! I've heard good things!  Can't wait to dive in!


Thank you so so so so much MeganCrafts, everyone you can now be jealous! Grin

The tape pouch is wonderful! And what a wonderful tape to use. I love the little Katniss and Peeta dolls. I am team Katniss, myself. I didn't read the books for a long time (read years) because I thought the romance was going to be the main story line. After I saw the first movie I had to read the books. I am so glad I did, while I am glad she and Peeta made it I totally could see Katniss being on her own at the end of the series.

I am currently going through the gallery with goodreads open to add all these amazing books we are exchanging.
