    I am really enjoying this project! I went digging in my old cross stitch and embroidery supplies and got really excited to be stitching again. I had some perle cotton and bought some (okay- a lot more!). I found a fat quarter of black woven fabric in my Stacy and decided to use that. This is what I have so far.

      I am new to embroidery and so thankful to have this opportunity to meditate with thread. I selected a plain tonal cotton so I could practice stitches. I’m kind of going with a “crazy quilt” approach. This is so addicting!!!

          I am really enjoying this project. I would appreciate Alex talking about different ways to finish the project i.e. ways to mount; make into a pillow, etc. She had mentioned previously something about putting on stretched canvess. Could she give more details about that possibility. Alex, thanks for all your help. Nancy, Star member..

            Have any of you found video tutorials that you really like? Right handed please. I saw reference to a particularly good left hander but didn’t find others on my quick search here. Thanks and Happy New Year. I’m torn between stitching or watching the BOM videos while all the football on tv!

                      Use the box Search the Forum—type Uploading Photos. The first post will take you to step-by-step instructions. Most photos taken on my iPhone are too large so must be resized smaller. That is included in that post.

                        Ahh I finally found how to make a comment. Yesterday it was the first time in months that I have had a chance to watch these classes. I am intrigued as I watch Alex demonstrate different stitches that the majority are sewn away from the body. I have always sewn towards myself with the majority of embroidery stitches. Is this unique to me or do others sew that way.
