  42. Ooooo, I am so excited I was just drooling over these last night and was even more excited when I logged on here to find the give away. I have been "fawning" over "Coming Home" :p I have been embroidering since middle school and that was quite some time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  43. What lovely pictures and designs! I've been embroidering since I was young. My mom taught me and my little sister all sorts of crafty mediums and the stitchery and crocheting stuck with me. The last thing I embroidered was a picture of my two cockatiels, Elvis and Stella.

    ReplyDelete

  55. I've been embroidering officially for two years now, but the first time I ever attempted to stitch anything was when I was ten years old and I made my puppy have a fancy tea party with me where I thought it would be classy to sew a big letter V into a handkerchief. Needless to say, my attempt wasn't very successful with a restless puppy and without a hoop...

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have never embroidered but this is absolutely lovely and I would definitely learn to make this!

  60. I've been embroidering for as long as I can remember! My grandmother used to sit me down with a needle and thread to keep me still while she knitted. I used to make little squiggly people with misshapen heads and odd looking faces. I'm much better at it now tho! I incorporate painting on fabric as well as embroidering it!

  71. To be honest I've never tried my hand at embroidery, although my mother/grandmother/aunts/sister all do it and I've always been curious about it. I'd love to learn, though!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh my goodness, I have been embroidering for YEARS. This post made me think back and realize that it's probably been 15 or 20 since I first picked up an embroidery hoop - eek! These patterns look like they will be fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I've been embroidering for about 5 years? But I'm not a consistent embroiderer, whatsoever. i'm loving it more and more, though. and usually will add embellishments to my wet-felted pieces and accessories! <3

    ReplyDelete
  77. Such a wonderful giveaway. Can I still enter if I have not yet ventured into embroidery, but have wanted to for over a year - but have just needed a little push to know where to start - like, say, winning an embroidery pattern - that would definitely light the fire ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Embroidering is on my list of crafts I want to try by next summer! It sounds time-consuming but I have seen such amazing artwork (including these ones) that I can see it's really worth taking it up as a hobby!
