Modern Embroidery Inspiration

I stopped into Hobby Lobby after work yesterday and came away with a mega-pack of embroidery floss–150 colors! It was only $12 with the coupon I pulled up on my iPhone. I tell ya, a good coupon will keep me coming back no matter how much I hate the place. I’m not sure I could ever give up Hobby Lobby anyway. Call it a love/hate relationship.

So anyway, I’m ready to learn embroidery! I spent last night clicking through this tutorial while watching TV and scouring Pinterest for modern embroidery inspiration

But what really gets me going is the idea of stitching on paper. How fun is this?

Everyone tells me embroidery is so easy, so I’m feeling optimistic. My success will depend on speed though–if a project cannot be completed in a single sitting then I’m much less likely to finish it. Fingers crossed that I’m able to knock out some simple projects in time to list them in my shop for the holidays!

  1. Just the sight of that embroidery floss makes me itchy to cross-stitch again! I used to do the elaborate counted cross-stitch kits while I watched TV. Something about making those little x’s with thread was so soothing to me. Seriously–my fingers are twitching as I type this! LOL. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time and I have so little of that with 2 little ones now. Alas. Something else to add to the “maybe again someday” list!!

      Cross stitch always looked so fun to me! Maybe if you don’t have time to cross stitch you could try embroidery. I embroidered a monogram (just a quick outline of one letter, if I’m being honest) in about an hour last night while watching tv.
