While Mark was gone I filled my evenings by trying my hand at embroidery. Although I've practiced various stitches every now & again, I've never actually attempted to make something. It turned out pretty well, although there was a slight mishap with the squirrel (look closely and maybe you can tell??) I had planned to put this in the new baby's nursery, but it looks really cute on the nature table, so I'm not sure where it'll end up. I found this darling pattern at here.
