Embroidery 101 - Part Two

I have begun a new embroidery. This little cherry is about 1.5 centimetres across. I realized when I finished it, that you really DO get the hang of it quickly. My curved lines were very bad at first. 

There was a bit of a learning curve doing my first embroidery in about 45 years. I took out more than one section to redo. In fact one of these teacups was resewn three times. You learn to sew by sewing. I was surprised at how quickly it came back and how I could almost hear my grandmother walking me through it. There are a few things I would have done differently...but all and all, I'm pretty happy with it!!

Okay and get your self a good embroidery hoop. So worth it.
