It must have been bad timing. Maybe my brain wasn't ready to take on a new skill. Maybe I wasn't mature enough to see it as a simple and cheap form of therapy.
I am so thankful that I gave it another chance in the past year because embroidery, needlepoint, cross stitch or whatever you want to call it, is my most favorite thing to do.
here are a few things i've done for fun or for family and friends:
Hank is my Hero.
a friend of mine saw this lil seahorsey and wants it so I'll be giving it a new home soon
I love you more than....
this one was especially fun and meaningful to do for my mom. it was her christmas present and I hope she loves it.

little deer - this was a cute one. I started out doing it just for fun but my dear friend Brittany saw it and asked if we could do an art trade. She sent me a beautifully painted fox.
this was for Chantelle
I made this special for Sarah. She was pleased.
this was a birthday gift for Lisa
... and about 10 other ones I haven't finished yet. I think I'm getting better with each new project.
