On the hoop

Step 1: Find fabric you can't live without.
Step 2: Trace one of the motifs from the fabric (while watching a dreadfully boring movie).
Step 3: Transfer motif onto linen and choose embroidery thread to complement the fabric.
Step 4: Embroider motif, squinting regularly to make sure you're following the actual tracing and not the shadow that also showed up because your wax transfer paper is really, really old.
Step 5: Wait until kid is asleep to even contemplate adding beads - do you know how much of a mess a 3-year-old can make with a whole tin of seed beads?
Step 6: Turn the whole thing into a purse that will sell on etsy like hotcakes. Hotcakes, I tell you!
