I've found my latest craft addiction: embroidery. I had no idea how much I would love these little stitches!! I did some embroidery on the wedding gift I gave my dear friend a few weeks ago and after that I was itching to experiment with more stitches. Do you ever get that feeling? Where all you can think about is a craft project and until you get your hands on the materials and have the time to actually do it, it is basically a form of torture. I'm sure there are other craft nerds who understand what I'm talking about....I hope. Well, I planned to spend last weekend playing with the cute cake embroidery patterns in the latest issue of Mollie Makes. On Saturday I went to Hobby Lobby to look around and find some pretty embroidery thread colors. When I was about to leave the thread aisle I found the iron on kits for embroidery and a dessert-themed pack caught my eye. I decided to try to embroider this phrase on a tea towel instead of the cakes because it is one of my favorite quotes, "Have your cake and eat it too!". I really love how the colors look. I picked out a ombré color scheme of pretty tangerines with blues to accent. Now I have another handmade tea towel to add to my collection! :)
