(By the way . . . don't know why some of the pictures show a bluish cast to portions of the linen. Must be something with the lighting.)
Okay, well, I'm ready to show you the results of the first lesson. Yes, Teresa is on Lesson 10. I am on Lesson 1. But at least I'm further along than the first letter of the first word! You've gotta give me that!
I accomplished what you see here while waiting.
Waiting until the kids' Co-op lets out. Waiting during a golf lesson. Waiting after basketball practice. Waiting at the doctor's office. Waiting in the orthodontist's office. Never knew I did so much waiting! Now I have something to show for it!!
At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this embroidery. My mind is used to churning, whirling, spinning, and there was something mind-numbing about the endless up and down of the needle. But once my hyperactive brain got slowed down and used to the pace, I started to find the creativity and simplicity refreshing and soothing.
And now, I can't stop!! I'm loving this. I love the freestyle nature of it. I love how I can put my own spin on it.
This is just the beginning!! There's a lot more to come as I make it through all 10 lessons and fill up this sampler. Can't wait to show you!
