Weekend Embroidery

I figured since I joined Hoop Up! I better do a practice piece just to make sure I still remember how to hand embroider. I don't think I have done any serious embroidery for about 20 some years (Other than cross-stitch) but it does come back fairly quickly! I've been wanting to try it again for so long.

WIP doe-c-doe pattern found here.

I thought I would try to stick with my latest favorite colour combination, red &aqua. I love the vintage look of it!

I love how it turned out and it was so relaxing and so fun. This is destined to be a part of a quilt block in the future!


  1. That is so cute and I love your color selections! There are so many ways you can use that.

  2. Oh my...this is the sweetest thing I've seen today! Wonderful!

  3. I'm a raqua (my made up term for red and aqua) fan too!

  4. Oh my goodness! The cuteness is just killing me. I love those colors and am redoing my living room with them.
