Nicole and I went to Fancy Tiger tonight to take a basic embroidery class. Just like millions of crafty people before us, we learned our basic stitches by making a sampler. All the women on my mom's side have engaged in old timey hand work like this in their day. Quilting, tatting, embroidery, sewing, etc...And I really like it too.
When we were doing the stitches I felt like I new most of them, probably from sleeping under the wool crazy quilt my great grandma made. The only one I suck at is the feather stitch. I even made up some of my own stitches and enjoyed thinking creatively about it.
Below is both our samplers. Can you guess which one is which?
We bought a few more supplies including a book of patterns. I wonder what I will make next?
