So I tried cross stitch, so the next step had to be embroidery. (Well, for me at least.) And the moment I saw Jenny's designs, I had the CC out so fast Hubster didn't know what hit him.
I don't think it's too bad for my first, and can only assume I'll get better as things go along. I am also supposed to be working on mother's day stuff, but I got impatient, and even though I haven't finished all the rick rack, I'm posting. Who would have thought Wally World would be out of black rick rack??
Tell me what you think-









Details, it's all in the details!!










So, should I needle on, and get better, or am I kidding myself?

Get better? You're a natural!  Nice work!  I like how you mixed threads to get cool effects too.

Super job! I can't believe that is your first embroidery.  I am definitely jealous!

I love the way you mixed the colors on Hot Cha Cha! and on the flames.  And the little pink knotted skirt?  Adorable!  That's amazing for a first attempt!  (Just amazing, period.)  Keep a-stitchin!

The details make it.
Wonderful job! These designs are so adorable that now I've seen your towels I may not be able to help myself from purchasing them.
