Day 190: The embroidery experimenting continues

I found a lovely selection of threads in my local charity shop and decided to practice my embroidery a little more. I've yet to be dedicated enough to prepare properly for embroidery so I just make it up as I go along, occasionally sketching the odd outline in biro should I feel I need a bit of guidance. I am certain this is entirely the wrong way to go about it, but it's a lot of fun to do whilst watching telly!

I made up a little flower/petal/leaf type pattern whilst watching Big Brother...

It's a bit wonky. The photo doesn't pick up the colours too well unfortunately.

This embroidery will form part of a bag which I am making for a friend.

Happy weekend all!


  1. Very nice! I've always been rubbish at satin stitch.

  2. Thank you Lisa! I am so happy that it is even recognisable as satin stitch! :)


I love to hear from my readers so please drop me a note :)
