I finally just went for it & tried embroidery (was always intimidated b/c it looks so intricate...which it is)
Went on a family vaca with the in-laws, so I brought along my old sketchbook, floss, needles, a hoop & fabric....
Only downside of my try was that I forgot to bring my "cheatsheet" of stitches - had to go by memory...so most of the stitches are made up.
not pretty...but fun! can't wait to break out more old sketches & chug forward...WITH my cheatsheet this time Grin
the first one...
and the one where I tried different excuses for stitches ...
Like all new moms - I am proud of my babies - no matter what they look like  Wink

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

Absolutely love the second one... lovely lines and fabulous stitching!  Great job... don't be intimidated by one of the easiest and least expensive hobbies out there!  Keep on stitchin'!  =)

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I like the 2nd one too, and I'm glad that you were super creative and made up your own stitches as you went along despite not having your cheat sheet.  I hope to see more of your projects posted down the road.

Ditto on the accolades for the second piece.  Embroidery is so much fun, and it really is easy and cheap.
