I also just received a book about beginning embroidery, and incorporating beading into your embroidery stitches...I can't wait to get started with this new form of art! I love to hand sew, just never really knew enough about it to really get the hang of it. This book, shown below, is going to be a breeze to learn from...:
Well, I guess I have enough things to keep me busy for a while, so I had better get started, huh???!!!
Also, leave a comment including your email address and you will be entered into a drawing for a hand painted bangle bracelet, made by me. Here is the bracelet-it has a pink hibiscus flower design painted on it, then coated with a good varnish.
Good luck and Happy Creating!
