New Header

So, I've been embroidering a cute design to use as a header for on top of my blog and I'm not happy with the crayons I used to color it or my stitching. I'm still deciding if I want to completely start over or finish it and see how it turns out. In the meantime, I thought I'd use an existing photo and see what I could come up with. You guys have been saying some nice things about my Scottie dog (thank you!!) so I cropped one of the pictures of that pillowcase and added some text with Picnik, which I think looks like I just wrote it with a Sharpie, and now my blog has a new banner. It's not at all fancy but it's something I stitched, and I don't know, it makes me happy to see that. And, I love how the gingham hasn't been ironed. That is so me.

Edited to add: I've changed the header since I wrote this but here's the Scottie dog one.

Awww, so cute!! I love scotties! (In pictures and stitchery, though in real life I have a thing about terriers, I'm not too fond of them.)

Very cute! Have you thought about going pink and white, and maybe a little red, on the rest of the blog, to coordinate with the new header?

Patty, I like your new header because not only is it very cute, it is also very personal. I like that your header represents you. Have a nice day! Twyla

Hi! I noticed it right away. I love it, well to be honest I love, love, love pink, and so wish I could cross stitch again but lost some sight in one eye so I can't anymore, I miss it, so I will just have to stop by and simply enjoy yours! Good work! Jane
