Hi there! Hope you're having a fun Saturday! I finished my first little embroidery sampler from the Patchwork Loves Embroidery book by Gail Pan. You can see it HERE. She would probably be less than thrilled that I'm exhibiting her pattern...lol.
Don't judge Gail's book by my embroidery. It has some really cute patterns and I'm going to try another one soon. I'm a sucker for little houses and anything that says "home" and little birds...oh, and alphabets. So, tell me, experienced embroidery people....how do you keep "travel threads" from showing through? Do you end each thing on the embroidery piece? Also, on a big piece, how do you keep it "not wrinkled"? I need to learn so much! Next I'm going to try Karen Walker's blocks. They are bigger so might be easier.
You can get all 4 in her Craftsy store HERE and they are half off this weekend! Well, I'm going to go sew. I'm working on the Austin Bluebird blocks that I'm not too happy with....I'll show you later. Have a great weekend! XO and cheery wave from Bev
