I’ve finally finished my first embroidered sampler. It’s from Rebecca Ringquist. I had great fun learning all of the stitches and can’t wait start another one.
There were some stitches that I really loved.
French knots and stem stitch
Filling with chain stitch
And some things I definitely need to work on :
Not so knotty
Loose threads and wonky satin stitch
I’ve found that buying embroidery thread is as much fun as buying yarn and fiber, and embroidery stitch dictionaries are every bit as tempting (and numerous) as knitting stitch dictionaries.
I already have a few embroidered holiday gifts in mind. I think I am thoroughly hooked on my new fiber hobby.
