Yesterday I met Amy, whom I met on twitter for a lesson in embroidery. I remember doing some as a child, but that was a long (long) time ago. Amy was so helpful and taught me lots of stitches. The stitches I have learned so far are:
and a variation of the fly stitch which I am calling a vine.
So far I have made this (I am about to add butterfly's to it). Its a favorite saying of mine that I thought I would put on the mug rug in my room so I remember it every morning. Speaking of which where do you have a mug rug? I have several placed around the house in the living room, dining room, bedroom and at the computer. That's 4 ways that my day is brightened by these cute things.
Since I am literally am embroidery beginner I would love some hints, stitch techniques and pattern inspiration from you.
