A New Love

I've got a new hobby, and it's safe to say that I'm in love.

In some sort of attempt to spice up one of my Project Life inserts I picked up some embroidery floss I had laying around and a needled and made a pretty (albeit crooked) heart on a piece of paper.  And then I remembered that my mother in law gave me a big box of vintage crafty goodness not too long ago.  Nestled inside of which was an embroidery hoop.

The result is this. (excuse the poor quality Instagram photo.  I'm far too lazy to get up to get my good camera)

Not too shabby for my first ever attempt at embroidery.
(Verse is from Song of Songs 8:6)
Watch out world, this new found love of mine could get serious.

That verse was part of a song I walked down to for my wedding... love it! You did a great job!!!
