Doodle Stitching....

I've been stuck on the couch for the last few days (thank you, sinus infection), but in between bouts of unconsciousness I have been doodle stitching on denim for an eye mask.  Here's what I've done so far:

The great thing about doodle stitching is:  No Lines!  You just stitch whatever you want wherever you want!  You can make a picture or something abstract
Embroidery is a wonderful and easy way to add whimsy to just about anything...curtains, tablecloths, bibs, clothing, bags, wall hangings, anything with fabric...Here are some of my favorite books with cute ideas for adding bits of embroidery to your life:
 In addition to the books I've suggested above, there are always "Aunt Martha's Transfers" that you have probably seen -- there are tons of transfer patterns out there.  Of course, embroidery patterns are only limited by your imagination. 

Have a wonderful day, and take care of you!
