I found a beautiful table runner that my grandmother had made of a peacock. I was so impressed by her embroidery work that I sat down to draw up some birds of my own. This gave me the opportunity to finally learn to embroider myself. ( And to keep my pencils close at hand so I draw more!) When I was asked by Aufiril Thread to design a March BOM stitchery, that has fueled my creative process with embroidery. If you visit the web link below you can get a free embroidery pattern A month! (Including mine for March!) Enjoy! Victoria Bumble Beans Inc. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know a few embroidery stitches to complete these drawings. This is an image pattern only. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Each pattern fits on one 8 1/2" X 11" size paper, and work well on a 12" block of fabric.
