Isn’t she lovely?


This is my most recent embroidery project. I found a coloring page online, then traced it onto white fabric. I used mostly backstitch, just because it’s my favorite stitch, though I’m not sure why. I like the simplicity of it. Anyway, it’s my first semi-big piece, and I’m pretty proud of it. My grandmother, who’s been embroidering for so many years, took a look at it, flipped it over to inspect it, and deemed it “very good.” I’d like to try freehand embroidery next, but I’m such a perfectionist that not having a pattern or a plan freaks me out a little. I’m interested to see what I’d come up with, though.

  1. I like it! I just went and got me a new cross stitch project to keep me busy now that the quinceanera is done.

    Bearette’s banana bread french toast sure sounds good!

  2. Your embroidery is great! I’ve just been catching up on all you’re latest adventures. I’ve been out of town for a while. Looks like you had a blast. I’ll have to check out that herb place next time I’m in F’burg. Have you been to the wildflower farm there? Its neat. But I doubt the food is as good as what you had! mmm mmm mm
