Last week we visited the coast for a little vacation. It was so so so wonderful. I took my new book and some supplies and learned some embroidery stitches while we were there. Here's my first project, completed during my children's naps, under the beautiful redwoods, in the cool coastal air.
I'm toying with the idea of using something like this for labels on my quilts.
By the time I got to "g", I was quite pleased with my stitches.
And we came home to my hydrangeas blooming in the yard. These are my favorite flowers and I can see a bunch of blooms coming - yay!
