Cheery Cherries

Embroidery as promised. Remember this is my first attempt, I know it is far from perfect. This is an old napkin that Granny gave me. The cherry pattern came from Sublime Stitching. The author, Jenny Hart, has a pretty interesting blog and some other really good books. Sublime Stitching did a really good job of helping me get started, having the right materials and provides hundreds of patterns (several food related patterns, which i love).
Oh, I forgot to tell you, I also started my first quilt this weekend. I will tell more when i actually have more than 4 squares cut out.

First....Maggie, the embroidered napkin looks absolutely gorgeous!!! It's beautiful not just for a first project, but for a pro, too! I'm so proud of you.

Second...A quilt! I'm very excited about that, as you can imagine, since I love quilting so much. That's great and I can't wait to hear more about it and see your progress soon!!!

Third...How many personalities do you have living in your cute self??? Now, I'll have to look at your blog every single day to see what new and exciting template and name you have now!! :)

I love you,

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I LOVE the way you "stage" the photos of your projects...yet another talent!! I wish I could borrow just a couple of your creative genes :)
