Try something new

well its a new year
time to try something NEW

I got this embroidery hoop kit at Joanne's a while back and it has
 just been sitting and sitting.. I was scared to try it

Well I'm happy with the results, not bad for a first effort with french knots and such

This is resting happily in my daughter's room now

The pic is hard to tell but its a 4" hoop so pretty tiny!

It's Sharon and I choose "celebrate" for our theme since it is New Year's Eve. 

...but I thought I would be a bit crazy and post this...not very new yearsie...but we could all use a little dose of summery flowers right about now!


Happy Near Year!
I can't wait to see what the other Party-Ers create this week to celebrate the turning of a new year!
