little somethings for little ones

The blog has been quiet but my hands have been busy. I wish I didn't have to choose one or the other! It does make it all that much more fun when I get to come here and share new projects with you all however. Today I've got new embroidery panels to share. I stitched these up as nursery decor but one of my goals with these was to make them a bit more versatile so they don't necessarily have to be used in a nursery. (That's the practical side of me by the way). They just landed on the shelves over at the SeptemberHouse website and the Etsy shop.

There is a stylized space-y design with a big happy sun and blue moon. I definitely got my backstitch on with this one and used that single stitch throughout the whole thing.

Next up is a floral design stitched up as a birth record (like how I gave this photo some staying power by bumping us all ahead to 2014?) I was a little nervous about navy blue for a girly-type design but darn it, I really like navy blue! I may put it out there in some other colorways at some point too. You all would not believe the hand wringing I go through trying to pick these colors - it's terrible.

Also new are embroidery panel kits. I have had some requests in the past for something like this so I thought I would give it a go. They come with the panel, hoop, needle and floss so there is no need to make a special trip to the fabric store. Who would give up a chance to go to the fabric store is beyond me though ... wait, I forgot, I have two sons who hate the fabric store so I guess I totally get that after all!

Last but not least, I know that setting the text up for these panels can be kind of a chore if you don't enjoy that type ['type' get it? ha!] of thing so I decided to provide some options to remedy that as well and am offering a free embroidery pattern, color and stitch guide and directions with each panel. The pattern has three text variations and a blank template for setting up your own text. I am always glad to help people out with this part of the process as well.

Some of my older panels will be getting a makeover this Spring so I'll be sure to share those when they are ready for their reveal.

A new pattern set is on the way too so watch for all these new Spring babies at SeptemberHouse!
