Road to addiction

As I've mentioned before, I'm generally crafty, and have always been. Having discovered the craft world on the Internet, my links of blog favorites grew quickly. The problem for a craft addict lies in how easily suggestive they are!

A most wonderful Nom - from a little dear pattern

Ravelry and knitting blogs led to craft sewing, led to embroidery, led to modern softies, led to paper crafting, led to.....

And so, to help push others into new crafty addictions, I thought I would show a couple of embroidery projects I did recently.

I used an Urban Threads design on this super cute t-shirt for my nephew. My husband lucked out and caught that huge drool - perfect for 'Where's me Grog?'!

This is a viking design I made from a picture a friend sent me. Sorry I don't know it's origin, but I thought it was so cool and translated it to an embroidery for Becket's shirt. Of course, he now refuses to wear it (what is up with that?!) So I may try to put some stabilizer on it and use it in a future quilt or pillow for myself.

I am in LOVE with that little birdie on the boat...such beautiful embroidery! He must be incorporated into a quilt!

Your work is gorgeous! I've always wanted to try that kind of stitchery. I am in love with the bebe and the gnome!
