I am proud to say that I’ve knocked something off my “Stuff I’m Going to Do” list! Go, me!

I re-taught myself how to embroider tea towels. Now, that probably sounds super boring. But I find it to be quite fun and even relaxing. My grandmother taught me how to embroider years ago, and I fell in love with it. She recently gave me a little embroidery kit filled with sewing supplies and tea towels and last week I thought, you know what? I’m just going to go for it.

This is the result:

This is the first one I completed! I meant to take “in progress” photos but forgot. Oh, well.

And these are the first two that I’ve finished. Pretty, no?

I’m pretty proud of them.

This is my current project. It will get done…eventually. But for now, I need to move on to a different craft project: finishing the scrapbook for my friend and her daughter, who is almost one year old now (I have a little less than a month to finish before her birthday)! The great thing about embroidery is that it’s not a one-and-done sort of thing. I can enjoy it my whole life, and maybe even teach my children/grandchildren how to do it someday (should there be any).

Until next time, friends.
