Oh la la

I finished an embroidery this morning. All in all it probably took five cups of coffee and two ciders worth of time. I have no idea how much time that is, but those really are the drinks I had while making this over a months time, ha! I just printed out the "Oh la la" from Illustrator and traced it onto the fabric. Then I just filled it in as best as I could. It isn't perfect, but it was so much fun to make that I think I'll make some more quirky small embroideries for presents this year.

The embroidery below I found at an estate sale a few years ago. Rifling through people's treasures makes me a little sad. Why didn't their grandchilden want this? Not everyone appreciates quirky embroideries though, so maybe it is good that I gave it a new home.
