Embroidery Adventures

So here are my first two embroidered pieces. The fan girl is for a friend to commemorate her bday trip to vegas, the sugar skull is my 1st piece done on a dollar store dishtowel. Always practice on something cheap first!

    For a beginner you have done a wonderful job. I used to embrioder years ago and haven’t gotten back to it. My grandmother taught me and my cousins when we were young….umm about 40 years ago to embrioder, crochet, collage and quilt. The crochet and quilting I picked up again as an adult, the collage I’m just now getting into but not the embriodery but I expect it will be next. Thanks for visiting my blog and the OWOH event.

    Thanks Dana for the encouragement πŸ™‚ I don’t know why embroidery always seemed so daunting to me it’s actually pretty easy to get started though I suspect it will take me a while to master it. I have no issue with french knots but large pieces of satin stitching I am finding hard lol oh well practice makes perfect I guess. Thanks for visiting me and it was lovely to meet you through OWOH so sad this is the last year!

    Great job on the embroidery, and the inchies. That’s something I haven’t tackled yet! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and keep blogging, you’re work is great.

    Hi Laura! Inchies are actually a lot of fun… I really am a more is more kind of girl so I always thought one inch by one inch isn’t enough space for anything l0l, but really it is much more space than I thought. Thanks so much for visiting me and for the encouragement!

    Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by my blog for my OWOH giveaway!

    I love the burlesque fan dancer you created – so awesome! And I would bet money you have hidden talent for all sorts of arts and crafts πŸ™‚

    Creativity was never encouraged growing up, so this has been a wild ride making dolls. I love it though and would never turn back now!

    Oh and your gnome doodle is so awesome! I love me some gnomes! πŸ™‚

    Hi Jennifer! Nice to meet you and so glad you stopped by my blog. Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment. You have a beautiful blog here and your embroidery work is something I so envy. I haven’t embroidered for years and don’t know that I even remember how. The details in your work are simply amazing.

    Hi Jennifer,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I saw your punch needle efforts – you did a great job. I tried one recently, a amaller owl one, and it did not come out very well. Also, you are one of the few bloggers on wordpress I have encountered. I love your page – how do you get the menu bar to look transparent? Is it a custom blog, or did you do it yourself? I’d like to update/improve the look of my blog, but wordpress to me feels very restricted. Thanks!
