more handwork!

One of my goals last year was to make at least one project involving handwork.  After my fun with sashiko, I saw some adorable embroidery patterns to try.  I got the Penguin and Fish pattern for  "L" because my daughter's name starts with L, and the little lion was super cute.  I've never really done embroidery before.  It amazed me how fun it was, as well as how little time it took!  I took this to a barbecue and finished it while chatting with folks and drinking beer.  This will also go on my daughter's wall (her room is generally jungle-themed already, with pale yellow walls).

I think I may have more embroidery in my future....
