Another Kitchen embroidery post!

Here is my second hand embroidered flair for my kitchen. I have one more to go. But my walls still look very empty. But I also plan on painting cupcakes on 6x6 canvases and putting them up on the wall as well. And who knows how long "Project Kick Ass Kitchen" will take. But in the end I will post photos of my kitchen for all to see!

Just like the other one, its hand embroidered on an old pretty bed sheet that I had laying about.
I think that the pink leaves on it make a good background, it's something else to look at. My walls are plain white and boring.

Ha ha! Something new to post!

I moment that I laid eyes on this design in Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart, I HAD to stitch it!

I had a pitifully plain v neck tee shirt that was screaming for embellishment. And the design was the perfect size that fit from the should to the *ahem* boob. (Yeah, I said it)

I used some white sequins as a finishing touch (I'm not a sequins kinda gal, but it worked).

hand stitched decorations

I got some dish towels for christmas from my mom, that are coffee themed. My kitchen walls are kinda bare so I stitched up some decorations to kinda match the towels.
I just took some old fabric that I have laying about and some extra frames.

I have a coffee and cupcakes theme to my kitchen and I like natural wood (light) tones too. But just for the kitchen. But as for the rest of the house, it's dark dark brown to black finishes.

Anyway, this is one of three designs that I'm doing. I still have to make the other two but this was an awesome start.
