the latest project

i'm working on a new embroidery project. after finishing (and loving) the bread bags, i decided to do something for the children.

i looked around my son's room and remembered that i wanted to make curtains that actually matched the room. isn't it so easy to stop really seeing what is around you? i think i tuned them out for a long time. and his walls need. . .something. and the clutter needs downsizing. bigtime. so, i thought this summer was the perfect time to focus on the "bedroom beautification project." both my children's rooms need it and i love putting my creative energy to use in making our home more. . . homey! so, the first thing on the list is some hoops. embroidery in some and just lovely fabrics in some others. simple, beautiful, natural. these are my 3 guiding thoughts.

the first of the hoops. . . a blueberry muffin! my son's favorite thing to eat. besides icecream. it's sort of a little joke for him. a blueberry muffin on his wall! so far, i've gotten started on teh yellow cupcake paper (bottom left). . . stay tuned for the finished product. . . .

Hi Kate. This is Melissa from Max and Ellie. I got the Rocket fabric from, but I checked and they don't seem to have any right now. A few other stores on Etsy have it; if you search for "David Walker Rockets" under "supplies" on Etsy, you should be able to find it. I love the embroidered bread bags, by the way. I just made 2 loaves today and thought there has to be a cuter way to store bread!!

I love your project idea!
I adore embroidery, I have a vintage embroidered tablecloth collection and it certainly has that "homey" feeling you are talking about : )
Have fun!

Love your plans. And I so know what you mean. I just sort of start to overlook things as they go on and on. Sounds like a great goal for the summer. And there you go making me want to learn to sew and your beautiful sewing.

BTW I finally FINALLY got myself some non-child-oriented Innocence Mission! How did this take me so long?!
