My online beginners embroidery class with Susan Sorrel started last week. I finished painting the fabric yesterday and had such fun using bubble wrap that I ended up covering my test fabric with it as well! I can see why so many fabric artists and journal makers use it - so addictive!
So here is the section of fabric I have chosen to do my embroidery on:
I went shopping this morning to get the the embroidery threads I wanted and the right size hoop. I'm very lucky because I have a little quilt shop called Needle and Thread just 10 minutes away from where I live.
I am sure that my threads would all get tangled up so I decided to get organised from day one. I put my threads on little cards with the details written on them and put them all in a little box. Wonder if I'll keep it this way but I do like it.
