As a kid I spent a lot of time stitching rather than crocheting - my mother was always working on decorative tablecloths or her gobelins. She bought me printed images of baskets of flowers or animal -themed pillows to work on and I was hooked.
I still love when once in a while I can detach myself from crochet and do an embroidery project - like this and this for example. I haven't attempted complicated and elaborate projects like these fabulous clothes presented here, but it is a challenge I am willing to take.
Enjoy the selection. At the end of the post I am sharing some of my older posts regarding embroidery.
