Well, here I am at the start of my little embroidery project as part of Stitching Sundays, organised by Chrissie. What have I done so far? Well, I have gathered new needles and an embroidery hoop and some material to stitch on - I have chosen calico (because I have extra in case things go wrong...which of course they won't).
Some of the lovely bits and pieces I'll be using.
I am just choosing a design from this rather gorgeous book, which has simple and quirky images which don't seem to be too daunting for a beginner, but I'll let you know once I have started stitching.
I do like this one, but simplified a bit and just using the autumn leaves section. Now I need to stop prevaricating and make a start!
