My very first own design

I have finished my first own creation and I am extremely happy!
After working in IT for so many years and being apart from my creative side, I was not sure I was going to be able to wake it up again! But it seems I could.

I have designed 3 letters (B I A) with the name of a beautiful baby girl recently born in The Netherlands. I will be giving this present to her mom next week and I am looking forward her feedback!

I loved to work on it and it has so many little details! I am sure that with other colors it would also look quite good. Don't you think?

What should I do now? Should I design the entire alphabet? ....
I would like to receive your feedback too! Please leave your comment and tell me what you like or dislike about it. Thanks!

Learning to embroider

The world of embroidery is much wider than I had ever thought.
There are so many amazing stitches to play with! At this moment I have my 2 favorites, but I might update this post later.  They are:

1) Sarah´s Hand Embroidery Tutorials -
2) Materialistic, a blog about stitching -

I just wanted to write this down here so I do not loose the links to those amazing sites!

By the way, autumn has started in Holland and I love it! I also makes me realize that my youngest son will soon be 1 year old. Time flies!
