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? www.dmc.com/uk/patterns-5041/ 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.
