sewingly along! Today is my day to participate in the Stitch Me Up embroidery blog hop.
I would like to thank Madame Samm for hosting this blog hop and Jane from Jane's Fabric and Quilts for being our cheerleader! :) I would also like to thank Colonial Needle, our sponsor for this hop! :) One more big Thank You goes out to our pattern designers, Debbie, Cyndi and Madame Samm herself! :)
I knew from the moment I heard about this blog hop that I just had to join in! I love to embroider! It's one of those things that really relax me. I also knew from the beginning which design I would stitch. I fell in love with the design the minute I saw it on the blog hop button. Yes it's the little girl designed by Madame Samm herself. Do you see her there? She's so cute! Don't you think so?
I embroidered her on a white polka dot fabric in red Presencia Finca Perle Cotton #12, using a simple back-stitch. Here she is . . .
She's soooo cute!!! As you can see I also dressed her in a red polka dot pinafore and head bow, which I appliqued on and button stitched around the edges. She reminds me of this picture of my mom as a little girl (she's the little one on the right).
I haven't gotten any farther than this with my cute little girl. I just can't decide what to put her on. My first thought was an apron. Then I was thinking a bag . . . then a mini quilt. Oh boy! Someday I'll decide and find her a permanent home. ;) I'm curious . . . what would you do with her?
Thanks for visiting me! It's been nice having you here! :)
Don't forget to stop by and visit the other gals who are hopping along with me today . . .
