A couple evenings ago I received one of my eBay purchases...an embroidery kit of Gnome in the Garden. This is what it's going to look like:
I think the last embroidery project I worked on was 4 years ago when Daniel was born. I made an embroidered birth record for both of the boys after they were born. But then I started focusing more on vide games in the evenings, and I don't have time for both.
But when I found this kit on eBay, I had to have it. And now I'm very excited to be doing another project. I really do enjoy it. I'm even having to learn a couple new stitches for this project. I've never done the Loop stitch or Turkeywork stitch before. The rest of the stitches I'm familiar with (Back, Straight, Outline, Split, Solid/Satin, and Lazy Daisy.) So this is fun! And when I'm done I'll have an awesome Gnome wall hanging! Win-win!
Then I also bought the embroidery floss and cross-stitch fabric for one of the Gnome Cross Stitch patterns I have. That will be the next thing I do. This Gnome I'm working on now will take a few weeks though.
