In case you didn't know, I like little. As in making little things. I really prefer working with little pieces of fabric with little prints and making little blocks and little designs.
And in case you didn't know, I also like stitching ... as in embroidery.
My copy FINALLY came in the mail a few weeks ago and I've been thumbing thru it pretty much every day since, tabbing all the pages with my favorite designs. As you can see, I have found SEVERAL little cuties in this book. Not hard to do when you have over 100 designs to pick from!
And remember my new pile of medicinal fabric?
Honestly I had no idea what I was going to do with it ... until I accidentally laid my new book down on my sewing table beside these fabrics.
Then all hell broke loose.
In a good way.
In an itchin' to be stitchin' sort of way.
In a "Kids, go get the takeout menus ... mama can't cook tonite on account of an embroidering emergency!" sorta way.
(Have I ever mentioned how much I prefer these types of emergencies over the ones that involve the Children's Hospital or the Poison Control Hotline? Although, come to think of it, I have gotten hours of embroidery done while AT the Children's Hospital with my kids ... gotta love multi-tasking!)
