guess what

i'm so excited today! i just made my first purchase on etsy. you wanna know what i bought?

i picked it because it seems to be lots of fun... at least i hope it is...


i bought embroidery patterns! yep. i'm going to embroider something. i'm still committed to working on the granny skills (you know, knitting, crocheting). but check them out...

they are designed by the incredibly talented elsie. check her out here. here. and here.

aren't they fantastic? i'm so very excited about trying something new. hopefully i'll get something started and blogged very soon. i'll probably start with a pillow for this sweet pea:


what's something you've never done? is there a granny skill you'd like to try? or maybe something you learned to do as a brownie that you'd like to try again (hopefully it isn't picking your nose)?

I just got back from Dallas and my great aunt showed me all of her quilts. They were really beatiful. They made me want to brush up on my "granny skills" as you called them. :)
