Hey! I've been doing a bit of embroidery lately to try to work on my skills... There are just so many amazing embroiders here that I admire, so I wanted to get better, especially with special stitches and whatnot! I had been sticking to backstitch, but I want to improve french knots and chain stitch. Here are a few I've done in the past month or so:






Had to fill in colors on with acrylic paints. The thought of stitching in a solid color was all too daunting.








Turned this one into a pin cushion... All of them are done in a 6'' hoop except for this one, it's 3''x3''!

I hope you enjoyed looking at 'em!

You may have just changed my ways!

Thanks you guys!!! I'm excited to learn some more cool stitches... I've been browsing the youtube vids on difference stitches and there are so many I want to try but haven't had the imagination as to what I'd use em for.

I love each of these.  Your stitching is so confident and you have a great eye for color and stitch combination.

Thank you so much! I like that you said my stitching is confident Smiley I like to treat it like drawing, but just very very slowly.....

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

These are so fantastic! The colors and subject matters are just stupendous!! I adore the singing sea monster. They are all so vibrant and organic looking. I really wish I could hang them on my wall.

You should be very proud!

Now I'm off to wist Smiley.
