Embroidery Anyone??

I am seriously thinking about taking up embroidery this year! I kid you not! I seriously love vintage embroidery, but this is a totally new animal!!

I stumbled upon Jenny Harts's Sublime Stitching site yesterday and was tickled by the great patterns!! Eiffel towers, guitars, skulls, cool mod cats!!

I have almost pressed the Buy button for her Stitch It kit to get me started.

Something all clean and nice about a New Year! The calendar is still not jotted upon day after day. There is still so much more time to come and things to do and learn!! There are unfortunately a few pounds that need to be shed, but the biggest compliments to my dh's, mom's and various relatives and friend's fabulous cooking!!

2007 has such a nice ring to it (although I become a mom to a teenager this year and that was a very strange thought!)

All the best to vintage and junk hunters alike!!!!!!!!! Happy New Year!
