I have been doing a lot of embroidery. I did those pillowcases and I am currently working on the cuff for Bear's pillowcase -- a cowboy boot with his name. But a few weeks ago, my mother in law made this adorable outfit for Buttercup and we thought maybe some embroidery around the collar would be really pretty.
I of course imagined something elaborate and fancy, but then I remember that I am still fairly new to the whole embroidery thing and settled for something a little simpler.
It came out so cute!
BUT, since this is supposed to be a yarn along and I am not sure that thread counts, I will share with you what Lily is making, because it is going to be a part of something I am going to make for Sweet Pea's birthday which is coming up.
I am still reading the fabulous book by Father James Martin, SJ The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: A Spirituality for Real Life. I haven't had as much time to read as I would like, I am one of those readers that needs quiet to read and there isn't much of that in a house with 11 people!!
So what are you up to? Too hot to knit?
