Only minutes to spare (okay I passed the midnight mark so it's really Tuesday in Texas) and I'm posting my Monday night hints and tips. This is for those who would like to embroidery French knots in close quarters. Don't worry too much about missed spots to begin with. When you have the area filled you can spot where you need to add more by looking for the base fabric showing through. To further fill use your needle and poke up from the back wiggling the needle a little to find any bare spots. I always do this to get the area as filled as possible.
I've always been crafting every since I can remember. I had a small working sewing machine and made doll clothes and toys until I graduated to a "grownup" sewing machine at the age of 10. I made a dress that won first place in our district Singer Sewing contest. My dad was so proud of me!
My mom taught me how to embroider at a young age and it's still one of my favorite things to do.
I checked out every craft and fashion book our small library had over and over again. I can remember crushing egg shells and painting them and then making collage pictures, I also remember my dad giving me stamps from his work which I cut up and used for collage work. I still love to do collage work!
I am happiest when I am creating whether it is with paper, fabric, buttons, or you name it.
