30 days - day 4

yoga, shopping, stitching while Indi naps, gardening barefoot after dinner... another hot day comes and goes.

Beautiful embroidery! I've tried sewing letters on cards with my sewing machine and it was tricky. I wanted to try embroidering words for a little project I'm about to start and seeing your pic has inspired me to give it a go! Gorgeous colour thread too ;)

thanks rebecca!! The thread is lovely isn't it...it's actually the weft from a gorgeous silk fabric my friend Mel gave me. I think I'm going to have to beg her for more as my supply is slowly diminishing :-( You need an embroidery foot for your machine to do letters and such, and you need to lower the feed dogs so you can manipulate the fabric or paper in any direction as you sew.
