Let Him Sleep.....

"Let Him Sleep for when he wakes he will Move Mountains"

The first time I saw this quote on Pinterest, I loved it.  I thought it was the sweetest thing ever.  I knew I had to do something with this for Max.  So time went by, I did nothing, did lots of other things, then finally decided to do something.  Do something with the quote that is.  I hope you followed that last statement, because I barely did.  Anyway.  That exact day that I decided to do something, I got an email from Emily Jones Design. The email was a tutorial about how to embroider.  Ummm, perfect, it was fate!  So off to AC Moore I go, with an amazing vision in my head.  Well, as always, I get there and can't seem to find anything that is in my "vision".  So I continue to search for things that are kind of like my vision.  I came home with cross stitch fabric(I don't even know if that's what it's called..), a needle that definitely wasn't for cross stitch OR embroidery, an embroidery ring and a ton of navy blue cross stitch thread.  So I used what I got and made it work.  It turned out sooo cute, I'm totally smitten with the finished product.  I went and bought a cheap frame from Target, and that finished it off.  Now just to get it hung on Max's wall.  That will probably take us another 2 weeks.  Things usually end up taking 3-5 days too long around here.  Such is life...

I definitely want to do more projects involving embroidery, I really really liked doing it.  I would definitely have to play with differents though.  This funky, not lined up, weirdly spaced font works well for this particular project, but wouldn't for all.
