Okay so I've sat here for awhile admiring all your work and been wondering if i should post my first attempt at this embroidery stuff tonight so here goes *deep breath*
I got one of the SS kits and decided to sit down with a movie and just try one section of my soon to be doodled all over pillowcase.
Gosh, I started out with split stitch, then went on to back stitch, then tried chain and had an utter fail and tried to recover and then tried a stem stitch which looks really weird...oh and a satin one too which I found to be easiest for me. I had no plans for what stitch where, I just basically wanted to learn as much as I could as fast as I can and kind of had an ADD episode as I was doing it
I'm gonna go back and add more of the Kurt Halsey patterns to the pillowcase (this is just one corner). My hope is as I move throughout the pillowcase the stitching will get better but I wanted to document my first official try. Please be gentle with me
