Embroidery Quote

We have a lot more walls in our house than we have ever had before so some of them are quite empty. In order to remedy that I embroidered one of my favorite quotes onto a piece of fabric and framed it. My friends have a wall hanging at their house that their grandmother made and I've always loved the quote. It says "Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing." 

It is hard to photograph since it's on the wall and there is a lot of glare. I really like how it turned out. I needed a mat and couldn't find any good colors at crafting stores so we went to Backroom Art Supplies in New London and the nice old man who works there cut a mat for me.

I really like how it turned out. I might be making more for presents someday.

Also, today is our wedding anniversary. Can't believe two years have passed already. We are going whale watching.

  1. Hi Lauren!

    Thanks for your message :) I'm happy to be back at blogging again too! I am thoroughly enjoying this new blog-- it's a fun project. Thanks! We don't have a date yet. I am hoping for May 31st, 2014. My sister got married Dec. 31st, 2011 so I think that would be kind of fun. It's really hard finding a good venue though and that is not crazy expensive. Also trying to find a job right now too!

    I'm glad you like Miss Rumphius too. Lots of great lessons in that book.

    Love your embroidery quote! My Granny had a few embroidery pieces in frame around her house. I think they're so pretty and simple.

    Happy anniversary!!! :)


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading what you have to say :)
