I am in the mood for a little more cheeriness, though, so I thought I'd share my second embroidery project, completed on a sick day right after my first. It's supposed to be a swallow, I reckon, but mine is much more, ahem, colorful. I wanted to try out the satin stitch, so here's the result.
I haven't decided what word to put in the little banner. I decided "love" was too obvious. Any suggestions? I'm happy with the progress I've been making in my embroidery, but the backs of my pieces are still a bit messier than I'd like. See what I mean?
I'll have more goodies to show you all soon, I hope!
