Embroidery Project


I worked on this embroidery project for my mother; it's a Marian symbol stitched onto white linen. This was my first time working with silk embroidery thread- it was as smooth as butter and came out so deliciously lovely!

  1. Exquisite! I have never attempted embroidery....is it terribly hard?

  2. Not at all. Try an easy project first... Here's an easy tutorial on how to do a basic stitch:

    I'd try an easy project where the backstitch is the only stitch used, like this one:

    It's so much fun! I'd love to see a post on your blog with your first project, Celia. ;)

  3. Great job, Marlene! I'm over here to look at your prom gown pictures, but this is great. Next for you - priest's vestments! Have you ever thought about that?
