Just finished up my second embroidery project. This one is another hot iron transfer and it went a lot faster. Think I’m getting the hang of it. I really like the blanket stitch around the border of the tea towels.
The WHOLE reason I started this blog…. I have so many craft projects going on at any one time it’s not funny. I’ve thought about blogging them for years but have been a little lazy. Flickr is my friend for many reasons, one being it’s a great place for inspiration. So I decided to bite the bullet, join in, start saving favorites and adding to some of the groups.
I’d like to get most of my recent projects loaded up (off to a good start with some of the jewelry and crochet items) and post what I’m currently working. More of a diary for my own self, I don’t see anyone reading this as I’m not going to share the fact that I started this thing.
So – here is my latest “phase”: embroidery. Here is my very first complete project and I plan on giving it to mom next time we’re down. I was able to use several different stitches and it turned out better than expected. I used an iron on transfer (a little scared to design my own for the first attempt) and think it turned out better than expected.
I present my tea towel:
So there you go. I’m probably going to give the blog a break for a few days and I do plan on getting some of my other stuff posted in here.
