a little project

Awhile back my mom made us a wall quilt. I wanted to hang something on the wall above our bed as we don't have a headboard. While we loved the wall quilt it needed something on the sides to fill out the space above our bed. (After Lilly was born and we spent many nights stuffed into our old full size bed, me nursing Lilly, both of us falling asleep, and Gregg hanging on to the edge for dear life, we upped our bed to a king!) Anyways, I decided to do some embroidery to hang next to the quilt. I love how it turned out and I am not really sure which is my favorite. which I guess is a fun problem to have.

I LOVE THEM! I have been wanting to make these too - but I haven't learned to embroider yet. Do you suggest any good books?

Thank you! I highly recommend Doodle Stitching by Amy Ray I think. Check my good reads to be sure. The green one is from that book a pattern for a blanket. But she has so many cute fun projects that you get a lot of ideas from.
