I love it when I stumble upon some old, unfinished crafty thing I did and then forgot about for years. I made this embroidery sampler after checking out a library book sometime in the early aughts. Maybe 2002 or so? Wow, was that a decade ago?? Indeed, it was! Anyway, this was stuffed into a box in my garage and I got very excited about it and wondered how in the heck I made all of those cool stitches.
And then, lo and behold, good ol’Etsy did a How-Tuesday showing how to do a few simple embroidery stitches. And guess who’s all excited about embroidery again? I have a project I have to have done by Wednesday, so I’ll share that later this week.
And here’s a little close-up of it. I wish that when I learned something, it would stick with me forever.
Happy Labor Day to all you laborers out there!
