Stitch What Makes You Happy

I discovered another little online crafting site with video tutorials, this one with an adorable embroidery project.

On your piece of linen, you map out 25 little 1 & 1/2″ squares, 5 across and 5 down. In those squares, with a pencil, you draw whatever makes you happy. I made a little list first which included flowers from my garden, edelweiss symbolizing Austria, lavender, gnomes, rabbits, our home, sewing (of course), a key symbolizing Bremen, Germany, coffee, you get the idea…

Then start stitching!

Bending Pins Embroidery Project

This is my first time embroidering, I know I’m not very good but it’s practice and I’m loving this project, perfect for a lazy day at the cottage.
