Thank you all! I guess proper wasn't the right word. Cheesy I didn't have anything resembling embroidery needles or floss. I didn't have a hoop, either. That's why I used burlap, I only had a blunt needle that I used for bookbinding. And I hope I didn't come across as 'look at me'. I wanted to show I was serious about the craft.

Hi,

I just joined today. I'm a total beginner and really need to do more samplers.

I didn't have any 'proper' embroidery tools yet. But I really enjoy it.


Wow! You may be new to Craftster, but the creativeness and professionalism of what you've posted on Flicker shows that you're definitely not new to crafting. Looks like we oldsters have a lot we can learn from you. I especially love the bookbinding photos. I've never seen that elaborate a spine lacing before. We may need you to post some tutorials. Welcome aboard!

And if the embroidery you posted is an example of what you can do without the "proper" embroidery tools, can't wait to see what you could do with them. What "proper" tools are you needing?

Wow! That makes the piece even more amazing! I can't wait to see what else you make. I love that you wanted you wanted to stitch something and you didn't use the conventional route. That rocks!

I've been doing embroidery for more than 50 years (seriously!! I'm that ancient!). The one thing I've learned in all that time: there is no one right way to do anything. Using a larger, blunt point needle and yarn worked great on burlap. An embroidery needle and floss wouldn't have worked nearly as well. Kudos to you for using the tools and materials that were available to express yourself. It's refreshing and creative and I look forward to seeing more of your work.
