The first piece I completed is "Always", which is a pattern by my good bloggy friend Rebecca at Sew Festive Handmade (she sells her HP patterns in her Etsy shop). Since I'm a newbie, the stitches weren't all the same size (I did my best!!!), but I love it all the same. I also got to try the french knot, which isn't really as hard as I made it out to be.
"After all this time?" "Always," said Snape. <<One of the most beautiful love stories ever. It's true. It's hanging right over my desk, so I get to see it multiple times a day - and that makes me happy beyond belief! (PS - on that note, more from Project Color My Apartment very soon!)
Next, I custom designed "Siriusly" for my sister, Ris, and her 16th birthday. My favorite character (and evidently, hers, too) in the series is Sirus Black. I'm pretty impressed with my ability to draw, copy, and accurately embroider the shape of an oversized dog, I have to say.
Are you obsessed with embroidery, too?? Please don't tell me I'm the only one!
