Embroidery School Lesson 3

So surprise, I'm actually keeping up with the Embroidery School. Here is my finished photo for lesson 3:
Embroidery School Lesson 2
Anyway, I've decided that I love french knots, and satin stitch is hard. Practice really does make it better, and I could see that from one end of the cupcake to the other. Can't wait for next week!

Here is a sneak peak of a swap I'm doing with Sara. Hope she likes it! I'll be mailing off the package tomorrow...

Wow, now I discovered Embroidery School. How cool. I keep using the same two stitches on all my embroidery but now I can learn how to do more...

Seeing your embroidery progress is making me think that I'm going to sign up for the embroidery class that the local fabric store in my neighborhood offers. Your projects are so cute!

That turned out great! I was working on mine last night. I would of had it finished in time but my munchkin stopped me.
