Trying out some embroidery...
















About two months ago I ordered a Leisure Arts book titled "Modern Primitive Embroidery" by Jennie Baer. I've wanted to try embroidery for a long time. I have been an avid cross stitcher since junior high school but have never tried embroidery. I decided that the hand painted dryer sheet makes a perfect canvas to finally try this wonderful needle art. I am currently about halfway done and am really excited at how it is turning out. I will gladly post pictures when it is finished. Have a great day!

I love this dryer sheet idea: good way to recycle, and an interesting texture for an embroidery medium. I can hardly wait to see how this turns out :)

Embroidery seems great to learn. I just love the details in embroideries. Have fun!

Hi Cassie

What a fun project to do with the girls and they came out great. Embroidery is fun and not that difficult. I can't wait to see what you make.
