    Embroidered | Just Dream Mandala 1.3

    "That which is striking and beautiful is not always good,
    but that which is good is always beautiful."
    - Ninon de L'Enclos

    I am not really sure I'm doing this right because some sites say that you need to separate the embroidery floss into strands. I am going to finish this one without separating the floss, to keep the thicker look. But now I have a new thing to try, using a few threads and making tiny lines and details.

    Ohhhh, Tammy! You're too funny!!! I don't mean t laugh, but my Grandmother taught me how to embroider when I was nine. Holy Cow! I STILL have trouble with the thread --- separating it, threading it, etc. And forget about knots!!! Here I am, a grown woman, and I STILL feel like I'm nine whenever I pick up an embroidery needle and thread. It's just NOT my medium!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

    This turned out so well! Yeah, what is it about the silly little secrets that no one bothers to mention? I used to cross stitch ALOT and after some time I found out about this too. But these days, I really prefer to use 2 threads, which I just take out one thread, then i fold it in half and i thread both ends thru the eye of the needle. I catch the loop on the underside and VOILA, i have my knot (so to speak). You are inspiring me to do some free-embroidery, you are, you are!!

    *Terri, I'm glad that it's not just me. I think I'm just not coordinated!
    *Eden, I like your idea for starting the thread and will give it a shot.
