My friend, Cath, is teaching me to embroider. Over the last week, she has shown me how to needle lace and a few basic stitches so that I can work on this.
Pattern: Starry Serenade Redwork
I’m really enjoying embroidery. I get so absorbed with creating the tiny stitches that I lose track of the hours that pass by. I have also been sleeping later than normal so that I can work on it. Embroidering relaxes me so much that I seem to feel more rested when I wake up, even though I’m sleeping less!
Here is a close-up of my handiwork. My stitches are uneven and the tension isn’t consistent.
But I don’t really care. I can’t wait to see this hung up on a wall somewhere in the house. I haven’t decided yet but I’m sure that it’ll make me smile whenever I see it.
By the way, the giveaway is still on. Make sure you leave a comment HERE to stand a chance to win an Amigurumi Pear of your choice.
Well, good night all. I’m going back to my embroidery.
