Honestly it's been a while since I won something here on the blog -world!! Yesterday I got home and found out that me and @papersparrow won a $20 dollars gift certificate from @wildolive .. a-m-a-z-i-n-g !!! It was just what I needed, this weekend I had 2 embroidery workshops so now I know the basic embroidery stitches I can use wildolive's patterns to create cute stuff! yay :)

Friday and Saturday



The two workshops were at Cosmos, a coffee place and an Art gallery and were sponsored by Dudua! I was so excited to assist one of their classes since I got here to Barcelona, but all August was closed, so I waited for them to re-open on Sept.. and I got to assist to 2 awesome workshops!!


Workshop #1: Embroidered Typography

Ok, First off, I was super excited to meet Eva, our teacher. I have been following her blog and her cute little shop for a while now, and I love her style!!
