Thanks bunches for all of the tips yesterday! I am totally jazzed to try a new craft, and although it can never compete with my love for embroidery, it's exciting to learn new things :)
I checked out all of the links and I am so excited for all of the possibilities!
Becky (the sweetie pie that she is) sent me a link for a super cute iron-on x stitch book, which I instantly bought and I can't wait to get it in the mail! I think an iron-on pattern is the best place for me to start because I am used to iron-ons and although I could probably do the whole graph paper shabang, I'm not so good at that sort of thing. Hooray for trying new things!
I can't wait to see what other magical patterns this book holds!
Thanks again little ladies <3
