3 In Art Every Day

Art Every Day Day 2 – Another Tree and a New Skill

Today I decided to try my hand at something I have been wanting to do for awhile – embroidery.  I first decided I wanted to try something like this when I inherited a large amount of embroidery floss from my grandmother.  A few weeks ago I was excited to find a few hoops at the local thrift store and have been waiting to “have the time” to get started ever since.   Well, today was the day!  This is one of the reasons why I love challenges like this.  It forces me to get out of my comfort zone and to take the time to try something new. 

I know there are lots of patterns for embroidery out there, but I decided instead to try something more freehand.   I’m pretty pleased for my first attempt, and definitely think I’ll be doing more of this in the future!

    Neat! I used to embroider as a child. Excellent first creation, especially freehand! Very seasonal too.

    Hey! I love your stuffed animals!

    And how great that AEDM pushed you towards this new thing! I so agree with what you say about the beauty of this challenge! It makes me create in even the smallest cracks of the day. I realized that every time I say “I do not have time to write”, it’s just not true, I CAN make time. What a gift this challenge is!
