mollie johanson from wild olive has a great, easy to follow tutorial on embroidery basics. this little cupcake was made from one of her many free patterns. i was surprised at how easy it was to pick up and how relaxing it is. until my thread knots. then i go into crazy mode.
*hm... the colors look faded when i upload them to blogger. it's happened before. sigh... i guess i should look into that.
