Way back in my New Year post for 2012 I mentioned a super secret embroidery project. Well, the time has finally come to reveal it. I really liked LuloBird's fabulous pillows, seriously you guys should check out her etsy shop. Her embroidery is so much nicer than mine. Anyway, I decided to make some state embroideries inspired by hers. I made one New Mexico for my dad's birthday which was yesterday, so I thought I'd finally show them on here.
I made the other New Mexico for me and then made two Oklahomas one for me and one for Mike's daughter Michelle who had to move to Wyoming with her family. I thought she'd like having a little something to remind her of home.
These were my first project to use perl cotton, it was easy to use, and I was glad to finally have some project for it. I picked out a few skeins in Eureka Springs last fall, but hadn't made anything with it yet. Hope you guys enjoy!
