Embroidery for Slackers

Hello! I’d love to share a little about my discovery of embroidery…when I get an idea for a project, I’m not really the kind of girl that sits down and researches or reads novels on the CORRECT way to do it. That’s not really my style.  I like to just sit down and try it out. That’s why embroidery is perfect for me (and you!). It’s a project that anyone can pick up and pick up quickly. There aren’t a ton of expensive supplies needed and the simple stitches are a piece of cake! My FAVORITE kind of project. This is my spin on a craft that’s been around forever. This is not your Grandmother’s embroidery! Even though Nana IS super talented.

Here are some simple stitches, the way I’ve used them in my home, and as a bonus, I’ve included a free pattern to get you started! Come on over!
