I love needlework, always have. It was so popular to embroider your jeans and workshirts when I was a teenager in the 1970's. I did a lot of that.
I picked up this book at a thrift store quite a while back.
I've been planning (I make a lot of plans) to start a project ever since. I've recently become quite enamored of bargello patterns. Yesterday I finally put the supplies together and started a piece.
I'm already addicted and it's only row 4 so far.
I decided to incorporate my first piece into a purse. It's pretty slow going, but I'm motivated. This is a pattern from the "easy" section. I've already got my eye on a pattern in the "challenge" though :->
