Hello everyone!
I just started teaching myself embroidery and wanted to share my first two projects with you all.
The first one I made was this plant, who I lovingly call Rodrigo.  I am notorious for accidentally killing plants (even air plants, seriously).  So rather than have a bunch of dead plants around my home, I decided to make one that would stay green forever!
The second embroidery is of a Alien in a UFO (I entitled Kirks Wild Journey) I made from vintage watches and watch parts.  I think he is super fun and he sits right next to my desk Smiley
I hope you all enjoy my beginning adventures in embroidery!
Thank you for looking,
-tashera jean

These are very good for a beginner! I wish my first attempts looked like that... I can't really decide which one I like more, but I love how you incorporate other materials in your stitching, and not just beads and buttons but unusual stuff as well. Really creative.

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

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! 
I'm all about pushing the boundaries with all of my crafts so I love doing unconventional things- ie. using watch parts in my embroidery, etc.  My next one will include LED lights Smiley
