This is my first embroidery piece I did for a class project. I decided to make it into a pillow because you can never have enough pillows!

Super awesome! I give you points for bravery too: I was too chicken to do anything but an outline stitch for my first embroidery! I would definitely love to show something like this off, great work!

Keep at it! and don't be afraid to experiment.

If you do lots of small things to start with, you can try stuff out, and if you don't like it so much, it doesn't really matter. Then you will have a better idea of what you really like to look at/enjoy doing, and use that for your next big project.
