Work in Progress ~ Embroidery plus...

 ...some sort of fabric border and a little quilting to go with it?

In a fit of heart-bursting love for my daughter, I felt compelled to do a little stitchery to express my adoration. I'm planning on hanging the finished piece in her room, hopefully soon!

Even though I'm still learning all the stitches, I find embroidery so relaxing and enjoyable. I feel a little bit like a prairie woman with my hoop and needle. If only I had a crackling fire to sit before. (Nice image, right? But that would mean trading in my Netflix, which, I'm not quite willing to do. Guess I'm just more modern than prairie.) Anyway, this is my work-in-progress at the moment and I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced as well as Tea Rose Home today!

  1. This is really pretty and I can totally relate to embroidery and how relaxing it can be!! I am working on a crewel project right now which is just embroidery with yarn-like thread! Also your newest follower :)
