Satin stitch

Fellow wonderers:

I followed my comrade at prettylittlethingsinabox into a September challenge at needlethreadcloth.com to satin stitch a monogram.

Being this is my first attempt at embroidery I watched the instructional video and was convinced I could do it. I finished it and went to post my results. After seeing the other examples, I need to go back and reevaluate my entry. It is looking pretty pitiful. It’s a good thing it is only the middle of the month. I still have time to beef it up or start over. But this is what I got.

Still learning new things and having fun. Until next time, keep wondering.

  1. You are a braver girl than I . I picked up a bunch of embroidery floss from a local crafter who was giving it away; and handed it all to my daughter! She is doing as you are, watching videos and trying to teach herself. Nothing is perfect the first time around. Keep on stitching. šŸ™‚

  2. there is nothing wrong with your first effort. I can tell it is a D, so that is good, right? šŸ™‚ Practice will make it smoother and easier for you, but this one will always be special. šŸ™‚
