Ohio-Embroidery day 4- Fiber Arts Seminar

Well today we started Embroidery and well it wasn’t quite as bad as I thought.

We learned the  back stitch, stem stitch, buttonhole, chain, French knot , satin, and long and short.

My knowledge of embroidery had included the one I worked on for my nieces birth quilt ( it was a chicken).

Dr. Leslie showed us some great examples, and books. Crazy quilt stitches,

Floral stitches

Embroider garden.

We also watched three videos one was really great,
