Embroidery Cuteness and an Awesome Friend.

My awesome friend April (who happens to be celebrating a birthday today) spoiled me rotten very recently and I just have to share.

April, like myself, is an avid lover of fish-tailed ocean ladies.

April, unlike myself, is amazing when it comes to embroidery! And she is also very spoil-y and sent out this sweet little mermaid just for me!

Look! Her name is Mereesa!

I think it is so adorable that April would incorporate my name, but make a more mermaid-y version of the spelling (the pronunciation is the same, btw). Seriously, how cute is that?

I don't know where April found this little mermaid pattern, but for all the embroidery lovers out there, I just want to point out the new patterns in my mom's shop!

This is one that my mom put together using my illustrated birdie and blossoms design. I seriously love seeing her patterns based on my illustrations! She does such an amazing job taking my line work and turning it into something completely fabulous!

And my mom designed this flippin' adorable dandelion.

Ooooh, so fluffy....


And for those of you who love to sew, make yo-yos, AND embroider... my mom has a new pattern for patchwork embellished pillows!

I can not handle the cuteness. Happy Tuesday, folks!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, April!

I can't embroider to save my life, so looking at all of this awesome-ness is like my kind of porn!

How ultra cool is that? That mermaid is precious and even more so that it's named after you. No one's ever named a mermaid after me...sniff sniff...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY APRIL!

Awwwww, thanks so much! I'm so glad you love her! I knew as soon as I saw the pattern that I'd eventually make one for you!

Looks like I may have to go shopping in your mom's shop again!! LOVE that dandelion!

I am coveting the dandelion fluffiness.

I wish I could sew! I couldn't even figure out cross stitching!
