Crafty Us.

Daddy (aka Halis) went away for the weekend, and we three have been getting downright crafty! Ok, Isaac isn’t. But Meg and I just received Jenny Hart’s Stitch-it Kit through and have wasted no time in taking up this new craft. We have begun embroidering tea towels and cotton fabrics. We are using “easy” stitches and learning new techniques as we go.

For those of you who may be interested in taking up embroidery, this kit is fun BUT you can easily get started without it … all you need is some embroidery thread, a hoop, a needle and a web search engine for finding online tutorials. I really didn’t need Hart’s book after all as I didn’t learn anything that I already didn’t know. But the designs she provides are very cute. However, for under $3, you can get started on your own.

So here is the piece that I finished this evening (it isn’t finished yet in the photo)…

And here is Meg working on hers …

Also, I have started making some really sweet VW us baby bibs. I am crazy about them and will start posting them on Etsy soon.

Thanks for looking,
