I bought these pretty green napkins at Walmart last week. I knew I wanted to add a little something to them, but I wasn't quite sure what. I also wanted something creative to do while watching television. Still only 24 hours in a day.
I am sure that I am not alone when I say that I usually run out of steam after fixing supper, washing the dishes and doing whatever else has to be done for the next day. That usually means I am finally finished in the kitchen about 7:30. So, embroidery is something I can do while watching television. It is not that I want to watch television, but it is dark and cold outside! I just do not have too many other options! I am usually happy to be sitting around 8 o'clock, in the evening I just wish it was outside on my porch swing with an nice cold beverage.
My grandmother liked to do a lot of embroidering. I know I get my love for needlework and detail from her. I remember as a young girl always showing her what I was making. It all started with hand sewing clothes for my Barbies! How funny is that? I have had a very busy week and have been neglecting many of my favorite blogs. Hopefully, tonight I will find sometime to visit. As you can see in the pictures, I do not have an embroidery hoop. I will have to start this project tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting!
