I've long been cross stitching other people's designs, for 15 or 20 years now. I thought it'd be fun to turn my drawings into needlework of some kind. I love embroidery so decided to give it a go. I learned a few stitches online (split stitch, back stitch and satin stitch), very basic. It's such a nice, relaxing pastime (like mosaics!) and I'm looking forward to experimenting with different stitches and techniques using more of my designs. Stay tuned!
P.S. You can find my art for sale in my Etsy Shop :)
Welcome to my blog! I've been creating stained glass mosaics since 2005 and just started learning embroidery. My book, The Night Before Christmas, was published in 2013 and is illustrated with my mosaics. For those interested in taking a look at how I create my art, I share it all here. Thanks for stopping by!
