A Crafty Tale: embroidered pillow

I am lucky to be an auntie to a truly spectacular young lady who, among the many things she does well, plays tennis at a very high, very competitive level.

So apparently in sports, you keep score (I was in the drama club crowd, I avoided sports and missed this part) and apparently in young people’s tennis, you keep score for yourselves, and apparently a lot of players do not  play as fairly as they should. So my awesome niece has an awesome saying and I embroidered it on a pillow for her.

And embroidery is getting its due  in a fun AP article today that my lovely friend Julie shared with me. I’m having trouble linking it on my phone, but will check back with a link later!  It’s a great piece and captured some of the things I love about embroidery as a hobby and made it seem accessible and easy to try, if you have any interest. And it also talked about several magazine articles and books being published this spring. It’s a good time to have an embroidery habit 🙂
