Hey everyone! I hardly ever post on here (and I know I need to do it more) but I would like to share my recent embroidery project. Don't know if this is considered a "finished project"....it's not that kind you kind finish in a day. I have started stitching different patterns that appeal to me on a large piece of fabric, roughly the size of a twin sheet.
Here's what I have so far...

I gathered up the other end of the sheet so I can sort of fit the stitched part in the picture. Once I have more designs stitched on, I'll pin it to the wall and take a better picture.
Here are some close ups of few designs I have stitched on recently.

Puppy Love

Ballerina Elephant
Both patterns courtesy of mmaammbr on Flickr. She has such wonderful vintage patterns.


This is most recent stitch. Pattern courtesy of Aunt Martha.

I am really loving this project and as I stitch more I'll try to update on here too.

Very lovely stitching!!! I like your designs, too. The ballerina elephant is cute. I like your choice of colors, in the cottage house, too. What lovely flowers. I have trouble with that type stitch. I always pull the threads too tight. They end up looking like twigs in the round.  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
