Craft Night


Now that my sister lives super close to me, we have started our own craft night. Wednesday is now craft night! Last night she taught me how to embroider. I don't know why I never learned this skill before, but it is fantastic! I love it! I know that a new hobby is not what I need, but I'm addicted and just after one night.


Look at this cute cupcake I made. It was just a practice design to learn all the stitches that I could. I learned five stitches: the outline stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch, french knots, and the one stitch that looks like an outline but curls (I can't remember the name). I had to undo the yellow outline because I was taking huge stitches at first and it looked really bad. So I ripped it out and did it again, and now I am super pleased with it. On to the next project!

So cute. Looks way good enough to eat. I wish there was some sewers or crocheters in my family to get together and have craft night. :)
