A year or so ago a friend of mine passed to me a partially completed embroidery project she inherited from a relative.
Two cushion covers: one already embroidered, and one only just started. I even received a little zip bag of the embroidery threads, which is terrific.
I've had this collection for a while now, in a drawer, and slowly my interest in embroidery has grown while I've been preoccupied with fabrics and crafting patterns.
So I picked it up last night. Boredom is a fabulous motivator when you can't move and reading just doesn't do it anymore.
I occasionally get a little bummed with my poor stitching but I realize this is the only to learn and improve.
