I was really excited to embroider this blanket for my dad! It was so soft, and looks great on his big armchair, waiting for him to have a chance to sit down and relax after a busy day at work. This is one of the first things I've embroidered for him, but it won't be the last!
Last year I followed this tutorial to make a poinsettia pin to wear during the holiday season. Mom loved that pin, and so this year I made her these lovely napkin rings by making the same flowers and hot-gluing them onto plastic napkin rings! She loved using them to make our Christmas dinner table beautiful, and I loved making her something special.
