Now that my sister lives super close to me, we have started our own craft night. Wednesday is now craft night! Last night she taught me how to embroider. I don't know why I never learned this skill before, but it is fantastic! I love it! I know that a new hobby is not what I need, but I'm addicted and just after one night.
Look at this cute cupcake I made. It was just a practice design to learn all the stitches that I could. I learned five stitches: the outline stitch, satin stitch, chain stitch, french knots, and the one stitch that looks like an outline but curls (I can't remember the name). I had to undo the yellow outline because I was taking huge stitches at first and it looked really bad. So I ripped it out and did it again, and now I am super pleased with it. On to the next project!
