An Embroidered Card and Some Crafty Kits

I embroidered a birthday card for my friend Randy, and I had so much fun doing it.  I don't know if I'm loving embroidering these days just because it's a new activity for me or if it's really an activity that's going to stick with me for a while.  Either way, I'm having a great time with it at the moment.

I was browsing the fun section at the front of Barnes & Noble where they keep the gifts and impulse buys, and I ran across the perfect box set for my new interest!  It's the Learn Doodle Stitching kit by Aimee Ray and I really want to buy it next time I'm there.  If I do, I'll let you know what I think of it!

I also couldn't help taking a picture of the Yummy Crochet kit by Kristen Rask.  How cute is that?! If I were to learn how to crochet, this is definitely how I would want to do it.

Have you picked up any new crafting skills lately?  I'd love to hear about them.


  1. I recently got one of those Doodle Stitching books too! I've always wanted to learn embroidery. I've played around with it a little bit, but haven't fully dived in yet.

    1. Oh fun! Did you like the book? You and I seem to have very similar interests. =)

  2. I've seen this crochet book too and it looks so adorable - how fun would it be to make this for a kid's play kitchen? (It's a bit hard to justify crocheting hamburger ingredients with smily faces on them all by yourself, isn't it? Hee hee)
    My latest "new" crafting skill was making my own stencils from transparencies - kind of practical, if you ask me =)

    1. Oh that sounds really cool! ...And way more practical than a crochet hamburger. ;-)
