Embroidery, the Journey

Tedious handwork is fun for me (the only thing I have patience for). Plus, I started seeing some really cute projects and wanted to do them too!

These are just all so cute! What should I make first?!

  1. Are these from Grandma Ray or Grandma Drevs? Once again–you do good work!!
