    Trying to beat the HEAT!!!!

    In addition to 95+ degree temps here we have also had 70%+ humidity (not normal for our area) and so I have been doing anything and everything to get my mind off the heat. I picked up this pattern from Kathy Schmitz a few months ago because I was intrigued by the embroidery work. I haven't done any hand embroidery since I was a teenager.

    I decided right away I wasn't a fan of the black and cream. In my mind when I think of winter, blue comes to mind. So this was my interpretation of the pattern.

    How cute, and you're right, it has been hot. I just moved down from Oregon, where they're also having a hot summer. I've been thinking about doing some hand embroidery too. I think it was the first kind of hand work I learned as a child, and like you I haven't done any in a very long time. And I think I still have some of those very old embroidery skeins - yikes! I wonder if they're any good now.

    Beautiful. I love it! I love your change from black to blue. Adorable. Thank you for including the pattern name and designer. I just might need to look this one up.
