embroidery over on jane's site, and wondered if i would be able to do it myself. i love digging through the embroidered table cloths and tea towels and pillow cases at antique stores, and i always wish i could make them myself. so why don't i? i would definitely have to start from scratch--i did a tiny bit of embroidery as a child, but have not really tried it since i was maybe 10 years old. so the other night, i met my friend emily for tea and knitting, and it's been so long since we managed to get together that she surprised me with a christmas present! now i have this beautiful little kit, which was recommended on someone's blog ages ago (i can't remember whose--if it's you, speak up!), and i can't wait to try it. i am thinking of something maybe for project spectrum, one of the goals of whish is to try a new craft with some color focus--this seems perfect for that. a new embroidered tea towel for my new house perhaps?
