Jenna,

Could you tell us more about your embroidery pursuits? Where did you geet the pattern? What type of fabric? Floss or silk?

I'd love a review of the lessons.

Thank you.

Love it! I've been getting into woolfelt penny rugs, counted cross stitch, and stamped embroidery lately- those projects are a good way to keep my hands busy when it's cold and snowy outside! Are those runes? :)

Jenna, for a beginner that looks really fantastic! I love that it's so graphic.

Some of the simplest pieces (one colour) make the most impact. Well done - I bet you enjoyed the change from your usual routine.

Hey Jenna, I just wanted to tell you I spent yesterday stitching too--knitting though! After I read Made from Scratch I decided to learn how to knit. Now I'm completely obsessed! I've done hats, socks, coasters, a little sun dress and now my first sweater. Do you sell your wool??

Antlers on the crow? Now, that is a Jenna embellishment. I listened to an audiobook while I pieced a quilt top last night. Now to sandwich, baste and prepare for free motion quilting.

Wow! What will you do with it?

Jenna, you amaze me with the energy you have to start something new with all the other things you have to do. I wish I had just half that energy...

And, by the way, me too my Christmas card to you came back last week, so, I guess that the address you gave us is just for the people living in the USA.

As it is the first time I comment on your blog this year, I'm wishing you the very best for 2012 and take care of yourself.

Have a wonderful year.

A good online source for embroidery instruction, ideas, and inspiration is Mary CorbettĀ“s Needle and Thread http://www.needlenthread.com/.

I have it bookmarked.

Good looking piece!
