    I do a lot of embroidery but have never worked on silk before, so this is exciting. I couldn’t find the fabric prep in the UK so used fine iron on vilene. I went round the edge of the piece with the overlocker to prevent fraying as I work. I have done several Sue Spargo patterns and have her books and am looking forward to lots of stitching.

      Excited to be here! Still waiting for my silk (it's shipped just held up in the delivery process). So I found these old hand-dyed button covers and started adding stitches. I have a whole bag of these and they are perfect for practice! :-)

      Being new to embroidery, I didn't realize I should have two threads. Oops.

        Besides the neutral fabric kit I added things I had, white linen, champagne silk charmeuse, white radiance, and a tan wool. I'm happy with they way it turned out thought it was a bear to piece with the different fabrics. Now to get some time to work on the embroidery. Alex, thanks for the inspiration!

          Here is my photo! Are my stitches to tight?

            Finally got the background finished. The stitching is challenging my skills.

              If denim is used does it have to be stabilized.

                I started working this afternoon… all cozy with a hot cup of chai latte and sitting under my Christmas throw with my lap app and embroidery supplies around me. Aaaaaaahhhhhhh…. So delightful! I got these 3 circles completed. I used the outline stitch, the chain stitch, and did a double daisy stitch on the smallest circle. I love it!

                  My Lazy Daisy and Colonial knot stitches. Thank you Carole B for saying you like it better than a french knot. I found easy is to learn.

                    Your butterfly is beautiful. Now I am off to see difference between French Knot (which I am familiar with) and a Colonial Knot.

                    Hi Rose from Philly here! I'm still waiting for my fabric to arrive, but in the meantime, I'm working on some cute Christmas embroidery. Sparkly snowpeople with crayon enhancement... and a piece from years ago... still not quilted. Alex will recognize the designs and some of the fabrics. Sorry, seems that one of the pics got turned around

                      Sandy, I googled how to do a Colonial Knot in hand embroidery and the video by Sarah Homphray was the easiest to learn. Mary Corbet also does an excellent job of
                      demonstrating stitches. I have been binge watching Sarah Homphray Embroidery. I feel like a sponge. There is so much I don't know. HelenW

                        Rose from Philly, What cute snow people blocks. Is that a Crabapple Hill pattern? I did Hook, Line and Sinker but applique and by machine. Now that I am learning hand embroidery I will be going back and looking at their patterns with new eyes. HelenW

                          Helen W. Yes the pattern is from Crabapple Hill. They have a gingerbread house set that is too cute and I believe they have a witch series... Just fun things !

                          If all goes well this will be a new rectangular pillow for my bed. I found some felt "buttons" in my stash and decided to try out some placements inside and out of circles. See Christen Brown's photos for ideas of how to incorporate. Notice how I stored my thread- Thanks to Lilo Bowman for suggestion to use 18-count clear egg carton. Brilliant!!!
                          I searched "embroidered mandalas" on Pinterest and found lots of ideas for combining and expanding the simple stitches we are learning from Alex.
