EMBROIDER-HOLIC

I’ve really taken a shine to embroidery. It’s fun, it’s relaxing, I’ve gotten pretty quick at the small designs and I think it’s way way pretty. I’m just getting into more expensive floss (thread), but overall if the design is cute and the work is neat, the embroidered piece is just darling. These are the embroidered towels I have done in the past two weeks.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great day of new beginnings. I woke up with some congestion that has been upsetting my asthma and driving me insane. I’m going to grab some Mucinex for later, but any respiratory ailment scares me, because it can get so out of control so fast for someone with asthma. Bleh – woe is me!

Other than that, I embroidered (which is fast becoming addictive) and knitted on a little surprise gift for someone. I’m determined to get the pattern out of my Harry Potter book and start on the ‘Luna’ vest I love from there too this week. Anyways here is a few photos from my lazy 2013/2014 switchover.
