Just Checking In...

Packing, packing, and more packing...with a dash of scrubbing and cleaning on the side. I have remembered to take some time to myself though. Since my sewing gear has been packed away I have taken up embroidery and LOVE it!!!

I bought a really cool kit called the Stitch-It Kit. What I love so much about it is that it isn't foo-foo embroidery like what your grandmother has on her pillows. This is rock n roll, sassy kitten, hula girl, punked out kitchen fun. Aside from the book teaching you the cool stitches the kit also comes with reusable iron-on patterns that ink your material, not leave a gooey pattern for you to follow. It also comes with lots of thread, a needle, and the hoop, pretty much everything you need to get started, even two tea towels to practice your awesome stitching on!!!

I highly recommend this kit to anyone who wants to hand embroider but doesn't know how and doesn't want some lame designs!!! Pics of my new apron that I just tiki-ed out as soon as my house is moved and I can find the darn camera!!

So exciting yet so draining isn't it? Hope you found a sitter for the girls so you can actually be productive. LOL!
