goal: blog an embroidery basics series
This may very well be my favorite goal for this year. (Have I said that yet? I may still say it again!) I often get asked about how to transfer my patterns, or how to work certain stitches. Usually, I direct folks to one of the excellent sets of instructions that are already out there. I mean, there are some really talented stitchers that are sharing their knowledge, and doing a great job of it.
But, just because there are good things out there doesn't mean that I shouldn't have my own set of instructions, right?
The goal is not just to do a whole series of posts about the basics of embroidery, but to also make it super cute, and with some things that especially pertain to stitching the patterns that I make. You know, like what's the best way to get those faces looking oh so sweet!
I am really excited about this one, and have been thinking about it for a while. There will be photos and illustrations and maybe even some video. It will unfold over time, but I'm hoping to get the series started by March. Spring is a good time to learn some new things, especially when I might just have other fun planned for summer. We'll see...
