Guess who's joining me in the July #listersgottalist challenge?

You may have already seen the news, but if not...the girls are playing along with me this month! Well, technically, I guess that I'm playing along with them this time since we're all using the Junior edition as inspiration.

Here's Victoria's mini book. I am surprised that there's not more bling on her cover, she's my artsy craftsy, blingy, designs her own clothing line girl so this is totally unexpected.

And Isabella's mini book surprises me as well. I expected hers to be more subdued, but I have to say she does love going over-the-top...so maybe I shouldn't be surprised at all.

I am happy to admit that I am more excited than I should be about this project we're doing together. I hope that they complete a good number of lists this month. And I hope I do, too. My plan is to bundle them together with some pretty ribbon and keep them together. I want to be able to look over these lists with the girls years from now and let them see their handwriting and their thoughts and their design styles and see what really great young ladies they were, and are.

I'll be posting our lists to Instagram @monikawright_iloveitall most every day, so follow along there for peeks or catch our weekly updates here on the blog.

easy embroidery projects in a hoop

6.09.2015  at 8:00 AM

Each year leading up to summer, I search for projects that the girls can create and keep them busy for a while while I'm designing goodies for the shop. I've been on the lookout for easy embroidery projects and pinned a few to my Craftmania Pinterest board, take a peek.

#summer #crafts #diy #embroidery #hoops

The first hoops I drew for them were easy, just a simple tulip and a house...Victoria has already finished hers and is ready to move on to the chain stitch. It's good to begin slow and easy and give a sense of accomplishment, at least I think so. My goal is to have them each embroider a few squares over the summer break so that we can join them together and make patchwork pillows for each of their beds.

I got all my supplies at Hobby Lobby: speckled muslin, hoops, needles and water soluble marking pen. From my 30+ year old stash I used the tons of DMC floss from my cross stitching days. Did you cross stitch, too?

Next up is this one, which I'm going to freehand so that we can make it bigger. I may even join in because it's just so adorable!

Thanks for stopping in!
