Posted in Embroidery
I think I'm getting bored with knitting. GASP! Actually, I'm just wanting to branch out and try different things. I've been doing only one thing for so long and I was thinking that it really would be good if I learned quilting and embroidery and such.
So Saturday I took a trip to the craft store and bought me a hoop, needles and embroidery thread. I tried looking up instructions and how to do things but I'm really just one of those "Jump in and do it" kinda girls, so that's what I did. I have done this once when I was really young, but I've slept since then so it was really just learning it like new.
I found this sampler on Sew Mama Sew! and figured I would start with it, having no other reason than I thought it was cute.
I found that I really like embroidering. It's still using thread and fiber, but in a completely different way. I think I could really get into this.
