I heart embroidery

I love the look of a hand embroidered embellishment. I did both of these. One's from a pattern and one is copied from a Japanese candy wrapper.

I am a little stressed out. Tomorrow I have a professional photo shoot. Yikes! Something I have never been a part of before. It's for an article that is going to be on the website
And while it is exciting, I am completely freaking out as to what to wear. I know that sounds silly, but it really is stressing me out. Here are the things that keep tripping me up on my decision.
-I can't wear white
-I can't wear black
-I don't know if I should wear jeans. I know it seems like I shouldn't, but I kind of want to portray a "young-hip" company that is casual and could be for anybody.
-I don't want to wear soemthing that is too trendy that by next year would just look silly. (These photos may be used for advertising.)
-I don't want to wear something that is too busy because I will be most likely be modeling purses and I want them to be the focus.
-I want to wear long sleeves. I have hairy arms which I don't care about but again, I don't want it to be distracting in photos.
-For some reason, I cannot find one decent long sleeve shirt right now. I know it is still summer, but I work retail and in retail it's back to school time. There should be long sleeves everywhere.
This all sounds silly but it is what is consuming me this weekend.
Wish me luck.

These are my favorite flowers. Colors are just like, Kapow! I found these pictures I took last year at the Botanical Gardens. Enjoy!

My husband, brother and I just got back from a long weekend in Oklahoma. We went to visit Grandad and watch the rodeo. It was incredibly beautiful because it was abnormally green for this time of year. Usually everything is brown and dry but there were wild sunflowers lining the sides of the roads and all the fields were green. I even gathered a bunch of wildflowers to bring home. Now I have an awesome, free bouquet for my kitchen.
I am always amazed at how many stars you can see at night on Grandad's farm.

I finally made something new!

I have been out of town the past couple of weeks and have really missed my sewing machine. So I am off my "real" job today and have been working away. I have been bouncing the idea of making a t-shirt around for a while. I have finally put my idea into an actual project. Here is my first one.
