As If I Don't Have Enough Projects . . .
As I mentioned in my previous post, my embroidery skills definitely need some help. So, that was the project du jour. I found myself at Jo-Anne Fabrics where I stocked up on supplies and even found a couple of baskets 50% off. Then with my adored Barnes & Noble gift card in hand, I purchased The Emroiderer's Handbook. This book is awesome! While I know just about everything can be found on the Internet, sometimes it's nice to just have a handy reference book close by. In my basket, you can see that I started a little sampler using the Algerian Eye Stitch, the Backstitch, the Bullion Loop, and a Chain Stitch. So far, so good. Definitely need to keep practicing, but it's a fun start.
