In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to embroider a cute saying. I didn't want it to be too Valentiney (is that a word?), because I want to keep it up all year round. I started out by painting my wooden embroidery hoop white.
Then I figured out what I wanted the saying to be. I thought that a treasure map theme would be cute--like we searched all around until we found us. X marks the spot. I just used embroidery floss and hand stitched the words. For the white blocks, I cut out white material and stitched them onto the base fabric with embroidery floss. I think it turned out pretty cute. It only took about an hour to complete, so I'd say that falls into the PEICD category!
