Coffee Embroidery

I have gotten tired of knitting.  I picked up this iron pattern and a few skeins of thread (all of my stuff is packed away).  I haven't done any embroidery in a long time.  The "cappuccino" is almost done.  I have to outline the spoon and the steam.
A friend is having a baby girl in a few months and I was thinking of doing something for the baby.  Maybe an Alice in Wonderland theme.  I must think on this awhile!!

Snowstorm Hat

i knitted this hat for Sophia.  I thought she had downloaded photos of her it but I guess they are on her camera.  It's VERY EASY.  The hardest part was getting used to the size 15 needles I used.  The pattern calls for 2 skeins of yarn but I only used one.  I didn't make the pompom, though.

Check out this Blog...

I got a book from the library about embroidery (my stuff is still packed away!). I liked this book a lot.  It has some really fun things in it.
The author of the book has a website.
Aimee has some really cool stuff on this site.
She also has another book out too.  I must see if the library has a copy of it.
Do you embroider???
