It’s one of my great desires to learn to embroider. I just love how you can add whimsy to anything by using a premade image and recreating it in thread. But boy do I have a lot to learn. I’ve always appreciated it, but I didn’t quite realize how little I knew or how hard it is. I don’t know why I’m surprised that it is hard, but I am. I’m used to being able to pick things up pretty quickly. And I think I’m already becoming quite opinionated about using quality materials. Big shock there.
So I’ve done a little practicing. All letters…which are again a lot harder than I thought. And it takes a long time. Am I just really slow? Probably.
I like some things and am frustrated with others. So I want advice from you all! What books should I get? What thread/floss should I use? Needle size? Hoop size? Fabric?! I’m a little overwhelmed with all that I don’t know. Socrates would be so proud. I know that I know nothing.
