anniversary embroidery


Sunday was our 6th wedding anniversary, so I spent my recent hours in the car making this little embroidery for Jared. The pattern is from the Polka Dot Bunny, and I saw it on Craft's blog back in June. At that point I was leaning more towards an embroidered love note, but the moment I this frolicking squirrel and hedgehog, I knew this was the pattern I needed. Those of you who know Jared understand why. :) I added our wedding date and a bit of embellishment on the animals.

If you are looking for embroidery patterns, check out the embroidery roundups on One Pretty Thing. Here are some of my favorites found through the roundups:

matryoshka dolls at Blue Bird Studio
little dresses at A Print A Day

Did I know that we share the same wedding anniversary? (P.S. it was our sixth too!) And then we go and have babies one day apart. We're living each other's lives! Except somehow I missed out on all of the crafty talent.

Love the embroidery. Love and miss you.

OMGosh, I LOVE that! I've never had any desire to do embroidery (it's kind of intimidating!) but I think I'm gonna have to try this for my hubby. Our two favorite animals are squirrels and hedghogs, what are the odds of that right??

Happy Anniversary!

Jill? Is this the same Jill that was in the BYU Flight Program in 2004-2005?! It sure LOOKS like you, but that would make this the most random coincidence! Well, if this IS you, this is Debbie (Packard) Roberts! Just wanted to say hi as I have RANDOMLY come across your blog! Crazy! Anyway, hi!! :)

Oooooh! My (first!!) anniversary was on August 16. My husband did not get an embroidered hedgehog :( but we did have a fabulous dinner!

I just came across your blog today and I have LOVED looking at all your fun crafty things! I think it has even inspired me to try a few things. Funny thing too- my 6th anniversary was on Aug. 16th this year too. :)

Thank you for this lead! I think this is just what I'm looking for for the last block on the baby quilt I'm making. And it's free! Super nice!! Again, thank you and you have a very nice blog.

this is perfect for me, having just moved to the states I have been at a loss as to where to find tapestry and needlepoint kits, I am off to take your suggestions as my hands are getting fidgety. Happy Anniversary, we celebrate our 10 years on Friday.
