New Start

I started a new project last night just before bed. I'm doing "Have Faith" by Elizabeth's Designs. I think it's such a sweet little design. I'm hoping this will work up pretty quickly. I'd love to get it done by the end of the day tomorrow! We shall see how that works out. This is my first time doing a Satin Stitch. I finished one of the sheep and I was proud of the way it turned out for my first attempt at this kind of stitch. This chart also calls for a Rice Stitch so I'm testing the waters in a few different "new-to-me" stitches with this one.

These are my new Gingher embroidery scissors too. I got them last Sunday with a 50% off coupon to Michaels. Aren't the lovely? They're so sharp! I had to replace my embroidery scissors because I gave my other ones to my sister with the tin and matching fob I made her - which she still hasn't emailed me any pictures of so we will be patient for that.

Thank you for reading and for all your nice comments!
