Blog Hop Release Day!

Welcome to the official blog hop release for My Favorite Things! If you have come from Melody's blog you are on a roll and in the right place. If you are a regular visitor you may want to begin at the start of the hop as the projects on this hop are incredible! Start hopping on Kim's blog.
I haven't shown you the newest little guy in the Pure Innocence line...isn't he great! Love him with his little sidekick pooch.

I got on a little stitching kick and decided to give his scarf so authentic dimension by stitching it with embroidery floss...and why not do the doggies' little scarf too!
Well, still thread left on my needle...might as well throw in the blanket stitch to go part way around my image too. As you can see, I do some of my creating "as I go".
I added a few loops to the end of the boys scarf so that I could cut them later to become the tassles.

Here are my card deets:
