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.
