Greetings people of the embroidery board! I am fairly new to embroidery, here are some things I have done over the past... 6 months? I'm not sure! There are some other things, but for some reason they refuse to upload Angry I might try taking new pictures if I have time.

I did this one for the bird swap a while ago, I made up the design and also the frame it is stretched over, I was very pleased with how it came out, and my partner loved it!

These are from a Japanese embroidery book that I got from etsy, it's so cute! I don't really know where I'm going with this, it's a really long piece of sheet, so I think I'll just do a couple of pieces from each page of the book (but it'll probably never get finnished!)

This is from the same book, I sewed it onto a little pouch I made and gave it to my friend for Christmas. It's snow white and the 7 dwarves, because my friends and I have each alocated ourselves a Disney princess based on appearance, and her's was snow white (I know! We're super lame! ((I'm Ariel) ) Grin)

A tiny house, also from the book, I needed something to fit in this tiny frame Smiley
So yeah, these are some first attempts, I'm gonna start doing some of my own designs when my exams are done. I've already started work on an epic flower embroidery for my grandma, so I'll post pictures of that when it finaly gets done, and I want to do some pokemon cross stich too  Grin
Thankyou for hearing me witter on Cheesy

First of all, lovely, all of them Smiley Second, the princess thing is decidedly unlame! (I'm Princess Jasmine)

These are great! I am a huge fan of the tiny stitchy things in the Japanese books. The little house is so sweet!
