I've been really busy this week. My car broke down and I had to go car shopping and stress about that for two days. Then I went to the premieres of Cabin Fever 2 and Zombieland. It's a wonder I've had time to do any sort of embroidery. But I did!


And, because tiny things are cute, here is a picture of tiny sushi. Awwww!

I ordered the Teeny Tinies pattern from Wild Olive on Friday. These little guys are teeny tiny.


See what I mean? And here's the little guy next to a quarter so that you can see how little he really is:

We went to San Antonio for a night to celebrate our 3rd anniversary (dating, not marriage). Besides making fun of many, many things, this is what I did on the way.

I'm giving this to my mom.


And here is my first embroidery done from a Natalie Dee picture. She is awesome. I plan to do several more. If you're not familiar with her, visit her at

Here is another Wild Olive pattern I did. My embroidery never looks smooth, the cloth always looks pulled too tight around the stitches. It never looks smooth. Maybe my cloth isn't tight enough in the hoop? I have one of those spring hoops I use, but it doesn't keep the fabric stretched tight at all. Does anyone have any tips on making these look smoother?

I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but on the little "shiny" spot, I used silky silver thread so it looked like it was shiny.

Okay, here are two new ones I did. The first one is from the Kitschy Digital Goods Kawai Fruits pattern.

And for your viewing pleasure, a crude hanger. I have no idea why I think this is cool.


I have to get to work, so that's all for now!

Action shot!

Okay, I'm so happy with the way these turned out, so I had to post them tonight!

Love/Hate Barrettes in action

Yes, yes. My hair is badly in need of dying. But what do you think of the barrettes?? I love them and can't wait to wear them to work tomorrow!

I'm baaaack!

Sorry for the brief hiatus, some other things were distracting me from my creative time. But, I’m back to it, and will happily post my stuff again. I like to write a ton on my blogs, but I think I will refrain from doing so and just post some photos of what I’ve done.

I also have another project going on, inspired by Twinkie Chan. You can find her on Facebook. She does these amazing accessories, mostly knitted or crocheted, and they are food themed. My favorite stuff of hers is her scarves. They are SO awesome. I may have to buy a couple, even though it doesn’t really get cold enough in Texas to wear them very often. Anyway, I can’t knit, and I can’t crochet, so I thought I’d try my hand at making light scarves out of fleece. I just need to come up with some designs. When I get around to doing so, I will definitely post them.

Until then, here is some stuff I’ve done in the interim:

First, my Love/Hate Relationship barrettes. Yes, they’re giant, but I am an admitted victim to the giant things in my hair trend. I was thinking of making smaller ones, sewing them together, and making smaller barrettes and some pins as well. My boyfriend drew the banner, because I cannot draw.


Here is another Black Apple/Sublime Stitching pattern. I think this little guy is supposed to be a ghost.


Here’s a tiny robot I did. It’s currently hanging in my cubicle at work.


And here is a set of recycling friends from Wild Olive.

Recycling friends heart

That's all for now. I have one thing I finished today, and another I'm working on, and then I'll post those photos. I'll also get one of the Love/Hate barrettes in action.
