This weekend a friend of mine celebrated a "special" birthday, so I wanted to make her gift a little more special than the "wrapped in the store" present.
I really love making these little pillows, and now I'm learning to incorporate a little embroidery as well. I'm just a beginner with embroidery, trying to learn stitches from a book or online. I'd love to learn how to include beads soon! Any advise from all you novice embroiders out there? I've seen your blogs and I'm inspired by your handiwork!
So, to end this relaxing, spring Sunday afternoon, I thought I'd leave you with some more of my iris photos. (I can't seem to stop taking photos of them!)
...and just to add a little color contrast, this is a flower the hubby picked out last weekend at the nursery. I can't remember what they are, but I do love their brightness and dark green leaves.
Thank you for visiting, and I do enjoy reading your comments!
I hope all of you are enjoying a relaxing, spring Sunday afternoon.
