My Latest Craze - The Threads and Strings of Embroidery
I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember. I’ve attended countless classes and art shows with my mom during my childhood. When I say countless, I mean it! Everything from quilting with the Calico Geese to porcelain doll making with a local artisan.
I can’t say I loved it all, but it did give me an appreciation for everything handmade and because of those experiences I grew to love crochet. It’s my craft of choice but recently I’ve wanted to branch out and discover something new.
With Embroidery busting out of the seams as to new HOT craft, I decided to try it out. Let me warn you, Punch Needle, is NOT the same as embroidery! The tools are little dangerous and I couldn’t quite get it even though I felt like I was performing the same motions as the teachers on Youtube.
Preferring immediate gratification like I usually do, opting for smaller projects that can be whipped up in a few hours but no longer than a day, I bought new materials and started stitching!
If embroidery is your thing, I’d love to see some of your work and please, I’d love feedback on mine. Keep in mind…the projects I’m sharing are only my first few. With the work I’ve already accomplished, I’m able to see the difference in stitches and the importance of spacing.
