    Embroidered | Just Dream Mandala 1.4

    "It's quite possible to leave your home for a walk in the early morning air
    and return a different person- beguiled, enchanted."
    - Mary Chase

     

    Since my last update, I embroidered a red center using a new-to-me stitch and a bunch of swirlies radiating outward. Three swirlies to go, and then I'll re-evaluate and decide what's next!

    This is turning out beautifully! Love all the little swirls and color! You've got a real knack for
    this handi work! Beautiful stitches!

    This is beautiful!! Sewing machines and embroidery are different - sewing on paper is easier- more stability with paper. Love all the bright color. I did a lot of Embroidery as a child, animals, samplers, we used to embroidery on clothing as well- especially denim shirts and jeans- good memories!

    Well, look at YOU!!! Your mandalas are gorgeous, but you've taken them to a new level and have really raised the creative bar with your beautiful embroidery. Hugs, Terri xoxo

    It looks beautiful. Don't know if you've come across http://handembroiderynetwork.blogspot.com - in their right sidebar they link to their "stitch a day" posts - very useful :-)

    I'm making a start on machine sewing...slowly. I did sew lots of toilet paper tubes for our Christmas advent calendar - that was fun :-) Ruined the needle though!

    *Eden, Thank you for your positive feedback! It's really the only crafty thing I do - and it's such fun to see the design come alive!
    *Carol, I remember doing cross-stitch and making hook-rugs! I'd like to embroider on a torn pair of jeans but it's intimidating me for some reason...
    *Terri, You are so wonderfully supportive, thank you!
    *Sam, I do enjoy the Hand Embroidery Netwk, and also some stitch videos I found on the web. I have to SEE the stitch in action... seeing it in a diagram doesn't help as I am directionally challenged:)

    This is really beautiful. Mandalas are so pretty and interesting, and I like that you're doing one in embroidery. You've inspired me ... I might have to try my hand at doing one ..... nancy
