I adore the snail and mushroom houses!  My mom would love for me to make something like this for her; she has a snail fixation.  Our house is filled with all manner of decorative snails.

Did you use special felt or just the kind of cheap stuff sold in sheets at craft store chains?

This is hilarious, inspiring, and amazing.  My goodness.

I just bought embroidery supplies today and am terribly nervous about starting.  You have given me hope.

I just love the whimsical vintage look of these patterns!  You did a marvelous job.

In Richmond, there's a good yarn and knitting (and presumably crocheting) store in Carytown called The Yarn Lounge.  It has classes and seems to specialize in natural fibers.  Here is their website, which includes the address and phone number: http://www.theyarnlounge.com/indexcontentthanks.html

I took a drawing course at one of the local universities two summers ago for art credit at my own (non-local) college, and I got my drawing supplies at Main Art Supply & Framing (http://www.mainartsupply.com/index.html).  They sell all manner of art supplies but seem to specialize in those for painting and drawing.  The staff is very helpful.

I used to work at one of the Ben Franklin locations in Richmond, but I assume people would rather patronize locally-owned businesses, so I won't list any of the BF branches.
55  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Ahoy-hoy! on: April 03, 2010 07:51:01 PM
Hello, Craftster.  Recently I have been seized by the urge to learn embroidery, and as a life-long lover of crafting and year-long admirer of this here community, I thought I'd join the ranks.

My non-craft passions include science (I am a geneticist-in-training), all things Russian, being eco-friendly, gardening, amateur digital photography, and politics.  My craftiness is currently limited to pretty basic and long-neglected knitting, accumulating upcycled materials that never turn into anything, doodling with Sharpies and colored pencils, and aspirations that greatly exceed my abilities.

I suppose that's all for now.  I look forward to expanding my crafty skill set with this lovely community!
