Doodeling - learning by doing

I have had some wonderful hours with hoop, linen and floss in hand. It is an immensely soothing activity, and I long to do more. 


A long time ago I tried my hand at embroidery, and had forgotten its charm. Now I am hooked again:) 


It might become a framed memory, but I have yet to find the right frame.


After what feels like the longest winter in a long time, we are enjoying the springing of spring. 

On a different note, a little while ago David gave me an award. Thank you!
I get a bit nummed when this sort of honor is bestowed upon me, so I humbly direct you to a post written after I had been tagged some time ago - here

I am off to fetch the kiddos. Have a lovely week end

Your embroidery is lovely. I used to do a bit myself when my daughter was little. I smocked her dresses and used the embroidery to embellish the collars and sleeves. It was so fun.

Oh how beautiful Una!! It's been years since I have done embroidery too and your pictures make my fingers itch to do it again. My quilting head was thinking how that pattern would be beautiful in appique too LOL.
