Happy weekend, my dears readers!
I'm currently riding the high of a finished project. My last project, finishing my 1930's bra, went so well that I thought I would do some more needlework. I think it's becoming a rather nice therapy for me.
This month I worked on a great embroidery pattern by Urban Threads, whose patterns I just can't seem to get enough of.
The pattern I used is Make Beautiful Things, which by the way, just happens to be on sale right now!
|Lookit what I made! I know, I have some practicing to do.|
This is now hanging over my drafting table as a cheerful reminder that I love my job because I get to help other people make beautiful things.
Months ago I used another Urban Threads pattern to embroider this for a friend back in Norway (who is famous there for her amazing cakes and cupcakes).

And up next for me on my embroidery to-do list is a little something for my kitchen:
|Death before Decaf by Urban Threads.|
If you're into embroidery, or you're interested in giving it a try, I definitely recommend Urban Threads' patterns.
But what about you? Do you embroider? Do you use your own designs, hunt for great vintage embroidery transfers, or do you have a favorite source for your patterns?
Just one more thing before I head outside to weed my garden. As some of my might have seen on my facebook page earlier this week, a colleague of mine just lost her husband and is as devastated as you might imagine (there has been too much loss, lately!).
Many of you know how crippling funerals can be financially so if you'd like to do some good today, her Etsy shop is still up and running (a welcome distraction, I know from experience). If you're pattern hungry, you might like to stop by her shop, Stitching By Numbers.
And thanks so much to those of you who did already- you are absolute gems and I'm honored to have such kindhearted readers!
