Teeny Tiny Foxes

My last post I shared the Vespa I made for Lisa in a tiny embroidery swap.  Now I want to share the most adorable embroidery she made for me. I'm pretty sure I screamed a little when I opened it.  She made the teeniest, tiniest mama and baby fox.

Could this be any more adorable?  It's so perfect.  I love foxes and she made one to represent me and my son.  I can't express how much I absolutely love this.

It's about two inches and look at the detail she put into it...the tails, the french knots, the baby fox's little hands. It's amazing.

Please check out Lisa's blog here!  Tell her how awesome she is!  Thank you Lisa!!

Vroom Vroom Vespa!

Hello lovelies!  I've got a little something to share with you today and by little I mean little.  I have recently finished a piece for another Craftster swap!  I haven't done one of those in ages!  I missed Craftster swaps and this tiny needlework swap was the perfect one to get me back in the swing of things. I had a super fab partner too, my friend Lisa!  I knew right away I wanted to stitch her a Vespa because she has one!  How cool is she right?  So here's her tiny Vespa.

The pattern is from here, I just shrunk it down quite a bit.  She also said she liked rainbows so I added some rainbow swirls firing out of the back.  The goal of this swap was to stitch something no bigger than two inches.  I would guess that the Vespa and the rainbow are about 2 inches wide.  I added a little eyelet along the bottom and then tucked it in a little wooden hoop I had on hand that I wrapped with some ribbon.  I was very pleased with how it turned out.

I loved this little swap.  It was fun and not a lot of stress.  Exactly the way crafting is supposed to be.   I loved this swap so much that I signed up for another one...Halloween In June!!  I can't wait to see what Lisa made for me!  I'll post as soon as I get it!! 

'Til then!
