This is my very first embroidery project!  I know I have lots of room for improvement and I look forward to more tries.

Here is the pillow I embroidered.  I found the fabric in my basement.  I think it is left over curtains after they were hemmed.

This is my monogram

This is the back and the first thing that I ever did.  I just drew on the fabric with chalk and picked stiches out of a book and went at it!


It matches my bedding that I made a few years ago!  I love this new craft!  I can't wait to do more.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love it!  What lettering is that?  It's so cool and goes with your snail style perfectly.  Smiley

I just made up the lettering.  I'm sure someone else did it before me though.

Really nice - I love the re-purposing of the fabric too. And great drawing of the snail Smiley

I love the little snails! The colors on the pillow are awesome.

The "I Suck at Life" is hilarious too.
