DIY Embroidery Floss Bobbins

Since I've started cross stitching, I've accumulated a lot of embroidery floss! After searching the web, I decided to make some embroidery floss bobbins to keep it tangle-free. Of course, you can buy pre-made holders online or in craft stores but I wanted mine to be a little more whimsical and I already had the materials on hand.

Petit Drawings

I pulled out an old sketchbook the other day and decided that I wanted to draw something because I missed coloring! I've been drawing nonstop for the pass two days and here are some of my results.

Sampler Progress Update

An update on my sampler! I thought it would be fun to center the theme of the sampler around traveling to places that I've visited/lived in. I didn't follow an exact pattern for any of the scenes and mostly made them up as I went along but I did get some inspiration from cross stitch projects and stock images I found on Google. First on the list is San Francisco/Bay Area.
