Bohemian Paisley Embroidery
Fabric: denim colored fabric
Threads: cotton floss
Good morning. On Sunday, I stopped by Joann's Fabrics to look at their cross stitch and embroidery kits. I wanted to find something I could work on as a break from crocheting and as my Friday Frolic project.
I'm not a fan of cross stitch kits that have Aida fabric so I browsed through the embroidery section and found this colorful kit by Plaid Bucilla.
I thought I could work on my embroidery skills while stitching on something bright and cheerful. So far it is basic stitches like French knots, satin stitches, and outline stitches. I think the most complicated it will get is split stitches. We'll see how that goes.....it can't be that bad, right? I just have to remember that I'm stitching this piece for myself. It doesn't have to be perfect.
Though I will say when I embroider something, I always remember the line from the Sense and Sensibility movie when Mrs. Jennings talks about her daughter Charlotte while showing off a sample of her work in colored silks and she comments, 'Poor Charlotte'. LOL
Until next time ^____^
