1  My first completed embroidery! in Needlework: Completed Projects by JenJenJen on: March 19, 2012 03:46:27 AM
I came across this C.S. Lewis quote on Pinterest: "You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me" and instantly knew I had to incorporate it into a gift for my book-loving, tea-drinking Mum.  I had dabbled in embroidery but never finished anything so I'm quite pleased with how this li'l piece turned out.  It's not perfect but my Mum loved it and I learnt lots to help me in future projects.  Please excuse the poor photography but I was in a rush!


I ended up using applique for the book covers as I was running out of time and wasn't sure I could get them looking neat without a bit of practice first.  Needless to say, I think I am going to become hooked on embroidery and am really looking forward to learning some 'proper' techniques instead of just winging it like I did with this!
