A Work In Progress

I must say, when I first heard about the Twilight series, I was skeptical. However, last October I was at a work conference and Borders had a table set up for book sales. I picked up Twilight and considered it (I had forgotten to bring something to read in my down time). I asked the employee who was working the table if she had read it and she gave me a rave review. Still, I was skeptical, but decided to give it a shot. Four days later, I had completed the book (carrying it in my purse everywhere I went and reading any free second I had). When I finished the first, we were in Gatlinburg (this was a very busy travel week for me, I can tell you) and I made my husband take me immediately to the closest BAMM to find the second book in the series. Thank goodness for the Garmin! I had the second book finished by the time we returned home, and as you can imagine, had to buy the third and fourth consecutively upon finishing each. If you are a female and haven't read this series, you are seriously missing out! I was immediately hooked. If you've read the series, you know what I mean when I say it was ALL I could think about the entire time I was reading it, and honestly, for a good month following. I was so sad when I finished the books that I nearly went back and re-read the first and fourth again (my 2 favorites). Now, with all the hype over New Moon coming out in November, I've decided to go back and re-read atleast the first book, which has inspired this embroidery:

I really love the font and hope my embroidery skills can do it justice. I'll probably put it in my shop when it's complete.



  1. The embroidery is so cute! I've read all the books too, and yes, they are hard to put down. I have you featured on my blog right now! Check it out!! :)

  3. I've read them all twice now! I'm an addict! Love the embroidery!

  4. I'm reading the book for the first time right now. It's great :). I didn't think I would like the books, but I'm glad I was pleasantly surprised. Your embroidery is cute. :) Hope you are having a good week!
