Finally my curtains are done. It took some time to complete because I hand embroidered the edges to match the dinner plates my son gave me.
My mom taught me to embroider when I was six, hard to believe, but with no TV there was lots of time to learn. Over the years I embroidered many projects. I also sew, knit and crochet. I started to paint a little while ago but I'm not very good at it. I still work at it but it takes a long time to finish a project.
If you have never tried embroidery I urge you to give a try. It's really wonderful to create something that is exactly what you want. I found a great blog which outlines all the embroidery stitches you will ever need. //http://primrosedesign.blogspot.com/.
