What are you most proud of? I finally learned to use the many decorative stitches in my machine! I also rediscovered the pleasure of hand embroidery. I want to have many works in progress to take along with me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Carol Ann Waugh's lessons closely. She does an excellent job of taking you through each step. I chose not to mount the piece but I'm glad to have those instructions and am pleased I can go back to the course as often as I want when working on future projects. If you love threads as much as I do this is a great excuse to add to your stash!
