This week my brother-in-law is marrying his high school sweetheart in Washington DC. They will be married in a quaint pie shop in/near Capitol Hill where they both work part-time to supplement their other noble endeavors of Law School and Teach For America.
They are an adorable couple with a great sense of humor and a taste for handmade goodies including pie, of course! So in honor of them and the big day I wanted to make them something uniquely them that they could hang on their wall or place on a shelf.
I grew up doing cross stitch but had an idea for an embroidered piece. While there are some similarities between the two, I had to learn quite a few new stitches which came together nicely thanks to Mary Corbet’s http://www.needlenthread.com/. Embroidered using DMC thread and my own design, here is my first official embroidery project. Happy Wedding, Eric and Crystal!
