HAND EMBROIDERED HOOPS
A few years ago, embroidery piqued my interest and then pulled me in quickly. I loved the endless possibilities just a piece of fabric, hoop, needle, and thread gave me. (Though clearly I became pretty hooked on florals and snowflakes. Can you blame me?)
I used to toss my supplies in a bag, take my son somewhere to play, and sit down to stitch. Which might lead you to believe I am an actual granny, but I saw the Countess of Grantham embroider on Downton Abbey one time and she is mega sophisticated, so.
HAND EMBROIDERED CARDS
When I started learning hand embroidery and making greeting cards around the same time, my husband asked what would happen if I embroidered a greeting card. After explaining all the reasons it obviously wouldn't work.. I tried it.
I love the texture the thread gives the paper, and I love using my own two hands to make each card come to life. Greeting cards are special to me because I know from experience that if the words inside are sweet enough, a person might keep a card forever.
So in that case we better make sure the rest of the card is beautiful, too.
