Embroidery- My Second Hobby

In my random moments of downtime I've been teaching myself to hand embroider and not willing to go back to work after such a fun sister weekend I took a half day vacation and attended a workshop by Rebecca Ringquist at my local A Verb for Keeping Warm. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself on the right track for most of my stitches and it was great to get some hands on learning!

I don't have a particularly creative mind and am always envious of folks who are able to create awesomeness with their two hands. I've found embroidery to be easy to pick up and a very peaceful way to relax my mind.

Now who wants some hand monogrammed saddle pads?

    I recently taught myself to crochet, but unfortunately it doesn't come in handy for horses :(.
