Embroidering all DAY!



so i've been busy, I've been having too  much fun embroidering one thing after another.  The camera was handy (as usual) so I thought i'd share some of the photos with you.   Here I have my lovely vintage Farm Peppers piece chugging along.  It took 3 thread changes from the beginning and I think I worked on it for 2 days.  I know that sounds ridiculous but the stitch count was almost 70,000 and I just worked on changing threads between trips to the grocery store and running my elderly aunt out for groceries.
To the right is the finished product.  Isn't it just beautiful?


Next I have the lovely shopping bag I made with quilting patterns.  It turned out great and I can put it on the etsy market this week. 
Well, tomorrow I will show off some of the leather bracelets I made up.  I should really be spending time on the baby stuff for this weekend's Honeybee Festival at the Famous Honeybee Centre in beautiful Surrey, B.C.  I will have to take some pics of the organic cotton bibs I made up also, so stay tuned for that.
