    I think I will try and draw up a few designs in this kind of theme and try and contribute something to the forum πŸ˜€

    I would imagine as long as they are simple lines they should be fine for embroidering.

    From the look of the links it doesn’t look like there is much that can’t be embroided? Never done it myself. Wanting to learn but I know I could draw up a few things easy enough.

    I should be able to do up a few cute things in a vector program.

    I just need to bloody sit down and commit to finishing one things instead of starting a heap of bits and pieces and not finishing any!

    This is officially known as ‘puddleducking’ at my place! Each UnFinished Object is a UFO and I have cupboards of them! I play tricks on myself and make myself finish a UFO before I start a new project :p but somehow the UFO’s still grow! I am finishing more things these days though! πŸ™‚

    Embroidery is easy to learn! There are many different types…… from X-stitch to hardanger – blackwork to ribbon embroidery! You can learn from a book or even an embroidery magazine from the newsagent will have some little projects ideal to start with and most come with instructions for basic stitches in a section at the back.

    Alternately you can find small kits at craft shops or specialist embroidery shops. These are great for learning different types of embroidery and seeing what you enjoy the most. There’s nothing more satisfying though than finishing something you’ve designed yourself though! πŸ˜‰

    And a little warning…….. you’ll soon be addicted! 😑 πŸ™‚

    Oh, and there is software available to turn your drawings/ designs/ photos into X-stitch charts- much easier than graph paper!

    (Edited to correct spelling!)

    i so love embroidery by hand especially redwork

    but what i cannot work out is people who do machine embroidery say it is much better how can it be it would take all the satisfaction out of spending time

    waiting for my grandie joesph to do me a drawing so i can transfer to a block to be made up of his drawings for a quilt for his 21st ok he is only 4

    That is a really really lovely idea. πŸ™ Wow I must be feeling really sooky or that is the sweetest thing I have heard for a while.
