Whew! I am kind of glad that all the holidays are behind us. Sad that I don't have another day off from my day job until Easter though. Anyway I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. I am excited to get started on my resolutions which include working out and eating better so expect some healthy recipes coming soon.
I had said to myself that I was going to take a break from crafting and concentrate on catching up on some reading so in the last two weeks I haven't crafted and I have read 4 books! I really recommend the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. But I have also signed up for two craft swaps!!! Who I am I kidding? Not craft ha, it never lasts long.
I have been waiting to post these two projects until after the holiday madness even though they were both made for holiday swaps. I can embroider some and these are two of my most recent projects.
I love my Gnomies! Don't you?
This project is a combination of embroidery and felt applique.
Mmmm cupcakes! I wouldn't mind taking a bite out of this cutie cupcake who was all hand emboidered.
Both of these patterns were purchased from Urban Threads. This site has great tutorials, designs, and freebies!
