i learned to embroider when i was a kid. turns out quilting is the best backing for embroidery i could find. In 2009 i got a machine and learned to free motion stitch. i still try to do mostly embroidery by hand though. Everyone's work is so inspiring, I'll never be able to do all the ideas that i have. I'm really glad that these sites have sprung up where people can post their work, because i really enjoy the galleries.
if anyone should check out my website, i can't update it and you can't contact me from it due to technical issues with verizon. i'm starting a blog, it's not exactly how i want it to be yet.
