Last fall I bought a kit from Shabby Fabrics. It's called Betsy's Closet and is adorable. My friend got one too! I haven't done hand embroidery for YEARS and it's kind of fun to get back into it - even though my fingers hurt!!!
As I was tracing out the last 5 blocks (I had previously traced 4), I got an idea for using this pattern a bit differently (if I decide to do it again). Oh, if only I had a little girl to sew for (ahem, like a granddaughter).
Here are photos of the first three blocks.
Well, the other blocks are calling my name! Time to get a cup of coffee and start stitching! Until next time . . .
