Can’t See The Wood For The Trees

I’ve never tried free machine embroidery before, not a whole project – I’ve played around with stitching but never actually made something. Well that is until now. The project came from Stitch Magazine issue 49 and was written by Tracy Curtis – the instructions were really easy to follow and inspired me to give it a go. So here is my first attempt at free machine embroidery and it was really fun to do – thanks Tracy.

I’ve yet to frame the piece but I thought I’ld blog it anyway. It is not a card – but you could make it into a card 🙂

    for a first attempt this is incredible, it took me forever to get the hang of machine embroidery, but once it clicked I love it.
    you really need to frame this one.

    WOW Kim!!!!
    I love this ~ it’s just beautiful. I am completely talentless when it comes to anything like this, the only thing I can do with a needle {even ones in sewing machines!} is make myself bleed!
