Allow me to introduce you to Miss Louise! Isn't she sweet? I've been wanting to do some embroidery but it's been a very long time since I've actually done regular embroidery (I was a x-stitcher for years). I decided to order two simple redwork patterns by Red Brolly, Bronwyn Hayes so I could just practice. Last night while watching the baseball game I started stitching and I can't begin to tell you how much fun I was having. I was doing a regular backstitch and some of my stitches are irregular but I'm that's OK. Now, my plans are to finish Miss Louise and her companion and then trace a few more designs. My mind is racing with plans and ideas!
