The weekend was full of football around here. Was it the same for you? My shoulder had been hurting (I think I slept weird) so I opted to not quilt and do some embroidery.
Emmalie checked in with me often for a status update: “How many more flowers, mommy?” It was fitting that her fingers be in the picture :) I found a vintage transfer on flickr – and quickly taped it up to the window. That’s the most professional way right!? I had fun, while Joe watched football, and I even learned a few new stitches too!

Here’s a question for you – When I first learned to do cross-stitch (as a girl, with grandma) I was taught to use two strands of floss. A book I have reccomends all 6 strands. I did a little of everything here – I think 3-4 worked nice on this piece. Any one have a rule of thumb?

I will do more embroidery, I like working with the hoop and floss :)

Hope you are having a great Monday ~ Amy
