Simple Advent Calendar

I hand embroidered and hand-stitched our new Advent Calendar. It's simple and a little 'undone' looking - but that's just the way I wanted it! I have never hand embroidered something so I looked up a tutorial online. This isn't the exact tutorial, but it looks really helpful.
I lightly penciled in some numbers on the linen and then went over them with a split stitch.

woot! The embroidery is awesome! You'll have to share your tips. Do you draw out the number first and then go over it with thread?
