Today I started to embroider. I have a beginners kit with sorted threads etc., the encyclopaedia of embroidery stitches (£2 from a hospice shop) and clean glasses. Main problem so far? Threading the d* needle.

Anyone else out there do this sitting down thing? It's a first for me as usually all go.. I have however been told to rest my hip. And my shoulder.

Did you know that DMC has free embroidery and cross-stitch patterns to download? They seem to change the ones available frequently so you may need to grab one when you see it. They do send you emails about the latest.
