Good Vibes

 

  

I’ve been cooking up this one for a while. A friend in my office switched jobs and it just seemed like the right message for a new start! 

When I showed another friend, she said, “Oh! You cheat and write it all out first!” And I said YES! Nothing is ever as hard as it looks! Also, if it weren’t easy, I wouldn’t do it. 

This did take a little longer than anticipated but I love the look of bold satin stitch text.

Baby Death Star (Pattern). I learned how to embroider because it seemed like a perfect gift. This one went straight to my husband! 

This mama sloth + baby just belonged to my friend Amanda. I stitched it up and sent it where it already needed to be. (Pattern)
