Hi all. I hope everyone had a smashing weekend. I am truly exhausted from throwing my almost 7-year-old daughter a "Ladybug" themed birthday party today. She had 7 of her sweet little girlfriends over and we ate, crafted, sang and watched a movie together. It was adorable. I hope to share pics of this soon - maybe later in the week.
But for today I'd love to show you these embroidered pennants I finally finished.
I found the pattern in Charlotte Lyons Etsy shop and ordered it right away. The white cotton came printed with the images right on it. All I had to do was stitch it in my favourite shades.
Honestly, I did most of the stitching last summer .....and then it sat idle for all of the snowy season.
Recently, I finally dug it out and added the ric-rac borders and the red ribbon edging.
I chose very "Cath Kidston-esque" colours which go perfectly in my apple-green painted living room.
I haven't embroidered in ages. It felt good to be back at it. Perhaps I need to get my hand on another stitching project right away. Maybe cross-stitch this time......
Hugs to all,
