I had some free time lately, and mom had a ton of embroidery stuff at her house from a long time ago, so I thought that I would try my hand at it.  I figured I would start out simple, so these are all easy projects that I did while watching TV at night.  Since I am new to it, I would love to hear your comments and suggestions, etc. so I can improve!

Sorry for the pics, they are blurry, and I have no idea why
my first attempt, Sublime (hehe, puns)

my second attempt, the Starship Enterprise

others I did

That's all, sorry for so many pics!  Please let me know what you think!

Just have to say that I love your sense of humor!  The Sub has me in stitches....*snicker*
Have you cleaned your camera lens?  My pics were coming out funny awhile back and I discovered my ds had rubbed gel onto the lens even though it had an automatic lens cover.... Wink

The Pin(trest) are mightier than the sword.

So cute! The sublime and monster are my faves!  I have to try some adorable designs soon.
I am a stitchy noob too, having just started my 4th piece in a week.  I just love it - very relaxing and helps keep me focused.

Very good job!! You're backstitches are nice and neat.  I wish I could backstitch like that!!  I like the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches the best, eating-wise too!!
