    I LOVE any “hand embroidery”! From cross stitch, ribbon embroidery, really anything that involves a hoop, needle & thread, y’all can count me in!! I would give my left foot for a “sewing bee”, “circle”, “group”, ANYTHING!! I just love to sit & sew, stitch, mend & converse w/ others who get as much of a kick outta this sort of thing as I do!! Thanks for this giveaway & Good Luck to ALL Y’all Fellow Stitchers!!

    I love hand embroidery. I first learned through cross stitch samplers that my mom taught me. I soon surpass her skill and started in counting cross stitch which I still enjoy today. I was taught how to quilt by my mother-in-law. With my embroidery skills I found it fun and quite easy. I love that I can embroidery patterns on my quilts not only does it hold them together but it adds a touch of beauty to it.

    I like hand embroidery. I have done cross stitch, embroidered quilt blocks and done silk ribbon embroidery. I especially like to embroidery with silk thread. I like especially making garden type sceneries with trees, flowers, ect. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Hand embroidery was my first crafting addiction. My mom taught me counted cross stitch when I was really young and I’ve just recently picked it back up in the last couple years. I love the small details and precision of stitches you can get with hand embroidery.

    I found your blog because I was searching for information on hand embroidery. My daughter loves making her own medication carriers and I want to hand embroider some things on them for her.

    I love to hand embroider. It is relaxing, and so easy to do. You can take it anywhere, and create numerous projects. I enjoy embroidering flowers, but as of late I have been embroidering dandelions! Thank you for the great giveaway.
