Well, I’m sort of back – but not for anything lengthy! Thank you all for the very good wishes and encouragement. It was an “interesting” weekend, to say the least. Surgery is not perhaps the most advisable way to extend your summer vacation!
But, to move on to Much More Exciting Topics, let’s get back to needlework! Here’s a pretty nice little online book you might want to browse through, when you have time.
Project Gutenberg offers L. Higgin’s Handbook of Embroidery for readers interested in needlearts. It’s a relatively simple book that includes information on different embroidery techniques, stitch information (with simple diagrams), and tips on finishing and so forth.
As you can see, the diagrams are relatively simple – but don’t be deceived by them! The book contains really good information for beginners to advanced embroiderers.
So if you have time, do take a peek!
Tomorrow, if all goes better, I’ll be showing you some photos of gold threads. Keep your fingers crossed!
Thank you again for your kind support and good wishes! See you tomorrow!
