I had no idea how much I would like hand embroidery. In fact I was really kind of scared to even try it. That is really silly I know, but for whatever reason I was. So after diving into it with the Advent Calendar (which still has to be completed..ahem) I found how much I love it! So yesterday I was over at Craft Couture and saw this charming little princess that she was doing in a sew along. I fell in love and headed over to Lilipopo. She has the sweetest embroidery designs and is offering this free pattern for the sew along. If you love embroidery head over to her blog and check out her designs. So this got me into hand embroidery mode. While I wait for my pattern to come in, I remembered that I found some designs from a very old German cookbook that I copied down. What's funny is the designs have nothing to do with the cooking at all. It's all very random. So here she is in all her Glory Miss Orangiana!
