I really want to learn how to do embroidery. It’s my next craft pursuit!

  1. 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 :)

  2. These photos are so wonderful!!! I am learning to knit right now and once I have moved on a little emboidery will be my next project!

    P.S. Love your blog!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
