Sweet Embroidery

Among my other projects, I've decided to start a new one, inspired by the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine and my awesome embroidery treasure I found while thrifting a few weeks ago:

I got the turquoise embroidery hoop at Michael's the other day and thanks to my embroidery find, I'm nearly sure I have all the embroidery floss colors I need for now. One thing I'm disappointed with Michael's though, is that they don't have embroidery ribbon...c'mon Michael's...what's up? Guess I'll have to order some online. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy this little project. Yea, I bought one with the pattern on it's been awhile since I've embroidered, so I figured I'd take it easy to start. But much like sewing and riding a bike, it's all coming back to me. I'll try a new stitch, only to realize that I've already done it...I just forgot I knew how to...sounds crazy, right? Guess that's what happens when you get stuck in that "college bubble." You know, when time stops and you lose touch with what happens in the world? Maybe that was just my college...I dunno. Anywho, it's kinda a good feeling, doing something you used to enjoy. Like going home after you've been away for's very comforting.

So Sorry Shabby in the City...somehow your comment got deleted? This is what it said

"Your stitches are wonderful! I know mine wouldn't be all lined up like that."

I can't believe you can tell from that shot...I couldn't get as detailed as I wanted to...silly camera, but thanks!
