Thanks everyone for all the good words over the last week!
Since my Mom has opened her birthday present I can now show it on her. Her kitchen is decorated with a lot of Swedish things especially Swedish gnomes. I noticed over Christmas her apron was looking a little tried so I decided to embroider one for her to go with the kitchen. I drew up a pattern for a girl & boy tomte holding a fork & knife & embroidered them in swedish red.
On one of the bottom corners I added a little heart & my initials.
Here’s a view of the apron
I have to say designing & doing up an embroidery design is so quick & so fun, can’t wait to do more.
I’ve been traveling in Southern California the last couple of days for work & had the longest flight home yesterday (7 hours from Burbank to SFO) so I spent the time knitting up this bright ball of Rowan tweed to be felted for cut flowers.
