along with lily's teacher gifts last week's embroideryfest produced gifts for two very special families in my life.
it's pixel family!! the patterns came from a tutorial on martha's website, and i customized them to make my friend's family. this was a lot of fun to make!
not to be left out, lily made a hoop of her own:
her class is studying ancient china in school and she came home last week all excited about yin-yang. when brian asked her what she was going to do with her embroidery she looked at him like it was the silliest question in the world and answered, "hang it in my room because i'm turning it into a hobbit hole."
i love that girl (how she managed to include taoism, tolkien, and snowflake bling into one 4" embroidery hoop is beyond me).
