This isn't so much a "learn how to embroider this exact thing" but more of a "here is the process I went through".

You can see more of my embroidery in my Etsy store, making jiggy.
Step 1: Making the Pattern
I first laid out the lines - I created an 8.5 x 6 inch rectangle to work in. I divided that into three boxes, one for each verse. And then I made room for seven lines of text in each of the three boxes.
Once I (and the buyer) were happy with that, I inked over the pencil and erased as much as I could.
I then ended up drawing out some flowers and stars - the flowers were resized to be much smaller on the final piece.
Step 2: Copying the Pattern to Linen
I used a water soluble pen to transfer the pattern - it's my favorite way to do it!
Step 3: Check to Make Sure Nothing Went Terribly Wrong
I also spent lots of time wondering how I was going to finish it. :P
Step 4: Embroidering!
All the text was done in two strands of embroidery floss - the flowers were as well. I did the stars in three strands, though - I wanted them to be a little more chunky because they're so minimalist.
The picture above shows where I got to the first day.
Step 5: Wash + Dry + Iron
The photo about is after washing, but before ironing.
I like to iron after washing because it helps set the stitches where you want them. :)
Step 6: Put It in the Hoop and Trim
Once it looked nice, I made a running stitch all the way around the edges and pulled on the needle to gather it. I knotted it to keep the gathers in place. I normally don't finish my embroideries this way, but it does look really nice and gives the buyer the option to put the embroidery in another hoop later or use it in another way.
Step 7: Finished!!
I miss it. Here are more photos of the finished piece.
