summer fun

If I lived in a lemonade commercial this is how I’d be spending my summer.


and a little bit closer here

I haven’t sewn up and stuffed these last two embroidered dolls yet. I may have a little something up my sleeve for them.

    I love her Hillary, my favorite yet. But, if you were to live in a lemonade commercial, wouldn’t you have to do all this embroidery sitting in an innertube in the middle of a lake. No…at home is much better.

    Your little embroidered girls are so cute. I can just see them framed in a little girl’s room. I think Toe Tapping Tilly is my favorite. Just love that little toe action. Maggie doesn’t know how lucky she’s going to be whenever she shows up.

    Just wanted to let you know that I received my pattern booklet and postcards today. I love them, and so does my 6yo daughter!
    But the best part is, she’s planning to take a sewing class next summer, and doesn’t want ME to make one for her. She wants to wait and do it herself! That thrills me.

    The lemonade thing is too funny. My grandfather once made a cassette tape of a country time lemonade commercial played on a continuous loop just because he liked the song in the background.
    Adorable.

    When is the booklet for embroidery girls coming out? You should seriously consider it! She’s super cute and just reeks (in a good way) of Summer Time! And I agree with Melissa about the girls being reminiscent of Betsy and Tacy- although with a modern/hip edge to them.Can’t wait to see more.

    So cute! I just finished my Fred Flare embroidery of a drumset for a gift. I used the split stitch and def. didn’t make it as teeny tiny and perfectly spaced as you did. But I think that stitch is pretty forgiving!
