Thanks for the link, karimusbunch! 

Here's a link I use. . . this site has lots of embroidery eye candy, but on the right-hand side, there's a list called "Stitch a Day" and a link to just about any stitch you'd like to try/imagine/dream of!

...that website is amazing. She makes all those stitches look so simple. She shows how to make a leaf and it's so simple... whoa. My mind has just been blown.

 Satin stitches are still a huge challenge for me.


Barbolot:  I used to have a terrible time with satin stitch  (still no expert but much better) until someone saw me doing it and told me you should always start in the middle of the space and work out to the edge on each side.  That made a huge difference in the way mine looked.  You may already know that, but just in case you dont...

THANK YOU!  I did not know that... had no idea!  I always started at one end, and then the stitches would get tighter and tighter, and then some are loose -- UGH.  I'll try what you suggested!   Kiss

Automaton J. -- I know.  I know.  And that leaf is so cute... I haven't tried it yet, though.

I love french knots! They are my favorite. And I like making stars and daises. I'm not that great at remembering and using technical terms for things, though.

And thank you everyone, I'm not too nervous about this anymore.

should we post some stuff we've made before on craftster to give other people a taste of what we can do?
(I haven't posted anything I've made)

I used to collect this series when I was 7/8ish (I know- i was a nerdy/crafty kid!)
Needlecraft magic- it's just so awesome!! I still look to it for inspiration today!
I still have 99% of the collection-but some pages have gone missing over the years T.T
Does anyone else have it? :3

I wish I did. I did some really neat stuff in my younger years. :/

There would be a bunch of my old pieces that would interest only those who are into medieval history when I was actively doing reenactment. I'll check one more time this weekend to see if I have anything squirreled away.
