My Next New Fascination

Embroidery! See, if you had any doubt I am related to my mother. :) I've been seeing cool embroidery all over the place lately and I've got to try it out! (I also want my 5th graders to try it out too.)

Jamie told me about The Purl Bee, and then I found Sublime Stitching. I also found several cool books on Amazon and HAD to have one in my hands so Ran to Barnes & Nobel tonight and picked up Doodle Stitching. I think I'll feel better just as soon as I embroider a skullon something. :)

OMG, wait til you stitch up a journal page or cover...oh, it's the BEST.

Jamie said...

Can't wait to see what you embroider first!!! It's addictive, yet relaxing! :)

Before you buy one more book, go here:
She has enough FREE stitches to keep you entertained for a VERY long time. We need to talk. First, you excavate the sewing machine and now this!!! Yes! I can teach you to embroider a skull!
