    My grandmother taught me to embroider when I was about 5 years old.
    I have always done it and enjoyed it, so I will encourage you to go buy some thread and start. It is really easy and soothing if your nerves need a little quieting.
    I love those pillow cases ! I might have to copy that :)

    oh, embroidery is so fun! it is like meditating, really. and the best thing is you can do it anywhere – on road trips (if you aren’t driving!), on airplanes, and during very boring meetings. i love the photos you posted and am itching to pick up a needle.

    I agree with Candice. Might have to copy those pillow cases.

    I learned to embroider while a Girl Scout in the seventies. The pin cushion I made for my badge is still among my favorite juvenilia. One of the moms in the troop taught us. She was very talented, had a beautifully decorated house and the whole experience of going to her house, seeing her work and learning this new skill was very inspiring. We used crewel-work wool yarn on coarse linen. I did a smiling sun, heavily influenced by some of the popular advertising motifs of the day. It sits on my dressing table today.
