A fun, free embroidery pattern that is perfect for beginners - 'TGIF' in script with some simple flowers! Great DIY gift for a housewarming party or a baby shower.

I have a few tidbits of advice that I will happily give to any new Mom, and one of them is that if it is logistically possible, have your significant other take over bath-time. My husband doing bath gives me a small window to breathe; I typically plop down on the couch, eat something sweet, and work on a craft project or read. Even though it is only ten or fifteen minutes, I feel refreshed. My husband jokes that he knows how the kids behaved all day, judging by the number of wrappers on the couch!

Naturally, I was all about trying the new Betty Crockerâ„¢ Sweet Rewards bars. They have three flavors, I tried the caramel brownie and chocolate chip cookie bar (brownie was my favorite!). They are sweet and firm, so they won’t crumble all over your furniture and are easy to tuck in your purse (as is an embroidery project!) and snack on the go.

I wanted to share a pattern to go along with the bars that is super accessible; anyone can stitch this up! It is a great first project, I love to think of myself as an enabler of crafting.

Stitch Love – An Embroidery Book Review

I have my monthly book review ready, and it’s for Stitch Love! Mollie, the author, blogs at Wild Olive and is an all -around awesome Internet person who is super responsive and helpful. She offers up so many awesome free projects and designs, there was no question in my mind that I’d buy her book and support her work! You can see the smiley Death Star that I embroidered for my son’s shirt in this post, from her design.

There was a #stitchlovealong on Instagram, and I had hoped to participate in all 3 weeks but it didn’t happen. I did embroider a silly little volcano on a denim apron we inherited – my son is fascinated by volcanoes so he was delighted!
