So, thanks to Sylvanna and Jenny Hart I am now officially an embroidery addict rather than a "oh-that-is-so-pretty-I-could-never-do-that" person.  Here are my first two projects.  I did the sampler from "Embroidery Effects" and then the sparrows from her craft notebook.  I am loving the transfers!


Please pardon the crappy night pics and the wrinkly sparrows napkin.  I was so excited to post that I didn't iron it yet Smiley





I'd love to hear what you think Smiley

I love it!!!  Very nice job!  I have just recently picked it up again (after like 10+ years) and am finding I also am an addict.  Can't wait to see more embroidery posts from you in the future!

Thank you all so much.  I'm really excited to do more work. I can see areas that I need more practice, but I'm new so I can only get better Smiley  I work at Bed Bath and Beyond, so now I keep an eye out for fabric napkins, placemats, aprons, pillow cases.....everything to go on clearance!

NH822, yay for you getting back into it! I'd love to see some of your work.

These are so great, amazing for your first couple of pieces  - I'm so happy you got hooked on stitching! Smiley

Did I mention that the embroidery addiction only gets worse?  Grin
