Favorites in Embroidery

I have developed quite the love for embroidery. It never ceases to amaze me the things people can come up with using a needle, some thread, and fabric. My own personal embroidery skills are OK, but they are a work in progress. I can only hope that I can one day create things like some of the people below have.

I hope in the future to combine my love of quilting with my love of embroidery by making a crazy quilt. I've seen some pretty amazing ones before, and I love how they are like giant fabric collages.

  1. Wow what an amazing collection! I love embroidery too but I just don't seem to have the patience to really get into it.
    Looking at these images makes me think I should give it another try, they are beautiful!
