Learn to embroider: check.

September 23, 2010

Although we have officially changed seasons, I managed to complete the last item off my 'summer to-do list' in the nick of time:

Experimenting around.

I'm still trying to teach myself all of the different stitches, but I'm having fun with it so far. I don't think I'll ever buy or follow patterns. Freehand is more my style.

It's like doodling with thread. :)


  1. Wow, it looks great. Gives me hope that perhaps someday I could do it without having it look like the mess of cords that live behind my desk.

    Good job!

  2. Thank you. I hate those pesky cords, too. That's how the back of it looks... I'm trying not to be too OCD about it. :)

  3. Wow this looks so professional! I love the design that you made it is so sweet.
    p.s. thank your the kind comment on my blog

  4. Beautiful! Great job! I've always imagined your doodles in embroidery form :)

  5. I really like it! I think it might become a 'thing.' I just need to figure out what I want to do with all of these embroidered little bits of fabric that are accumulating.

  6. I can't WAIT to see the embroidery lookin like your doodles!!! so excited!!
