The theme for today is: Embroidery

23 04 2008

I apologize in advance to those who come here only for knitting, I will try to post about my knitting soon!

Since I first talked about embroidery back on Friday, a lot of things have happened.

I embroidered the drawing I showed you.

My first embroidery project

I used a combination of split and back stitch. The results are very naive but I find it really cute and enough for me to fall in love with embroidery.

The next day I found out that a very good friend used to embroider and had lots of stuff to give me.

Embroidery materials

She gave me all of her embroidery floss, a hoop and some needles. She also lent me both books.

Organizing my new hobby

Became this

Embroidery floss - All nice and straightened out!

Doesn’t it look pretty?!

A great sale at AC Moore brought about the purchase of about 2 dozen more colors of floss.

Last night I decided to embroider a little something of my own design to practice a few more stitches.

My second embroidery

I also purchased a pack of flour sack towels to embroider these beauties by Posie gets cozy.  Those will probably be up next!

I am massively jealous of your embroidery skills! Where do you get your flour sack towels? I love those things more than any other towel and everywhere I look they are super expensive (i am talking plain, not hand embroidered) I know my mom gets them for super cheap, but we don’t have the same stores out here.

This little scene is so adorable! I’m totally in the mood to embroider after listening to Jenny Hart’s interview on Craftsanity.com.
