I decided that I liked doing the first embroidery project so much that I would jump right in and do a second one. This pattern is also from the book "Modern Primitive Embroidery" by Jennie Baer. I am normally not a fast craft person. It usually takes me quite a while to finish any project. Take knitting for example; it takes me weeks and weeks to finish a baby blanket. Embroidery however, goes by fast! I can take it outside with me when the girls are playing and I don't have to worry about counting stitches or reading a chart. It seems like the perfect medium for someone like me: an over indulgent mother who has two very demanding little girls! (I know, if I wouldn't over indulge they wouldn't be so demanding!) I'm going to try my hand at designing my own pattern next. Something simple I think like just a couple of sun flowers. Wish me luck!

Wow! Your truly thinking outside the box, using coffee filters, bags & dryer sheets as a base for your stitching! Yours looks fabulous!
