As I am still quite new to embroidery, I don't know anything about the different thread types and sizes. Take perle for instance, which is thicker 3 or 5? What are they used for? Does anyone have or…Continue

I do most of my embroidery in-hand but for some techniques I know I'd get better results if I used a frame. I'd welcome some recommendations. The frames I do own are the old-fashioned bamboo ones with a screw to tighten the outer ring, and using them I can't seem to get the fabric really taut.
I have been looking at all this embroidery for quite some time now. I have done embroidery and needlepoint in pictures, but never on anything. All of the work I've seen here is just gorgeous, but don't know if I will ever go that far with it myself. I still like to look at it though. Keep up the good work...!
Finished this last block nr 25 and am going back to the other blocks and filling them up lots more. Just love lavender.
Using some satin ribbon and just had to fill some more spaces.
Now that SALA is over I can concentrate on my pieces for our March Exhibition "A Touch of Venice". I am still trying not to buy anything and my mask filled that criteria. The mask was given to me by a friend and I used one of the old ties from my stash. I drew the pattern myself and the embroidery is stem stitch and fly stitch leaves stitched with perle 8 thread (from the stash). The little crystal flowers, hot fix jems and beads are leftovers from other projects and the ribbon is from the stash. For the bias binding I covered some piping cord with the ribbon and stitched it with gold thread. The ruffle at the top is a scrap of gold fabric and the milliners net is from my stash as well.
Just a update I am slowly but surely getting the blocks done, I am now on block 19 and still having lots of fun.
Carol, what a beautiful block and congrats on your ribbon.
Carol, this is lovely, well done for winning a prize, it's nice to have the acknowledgement.
Congratulations Carol. Well deserved. It is wonderful to have the judges acknowledge ones ability and creativity and very nice for all the world to see it too.
Well done Carol on both - you must be smiling:)
The blue feather I did for part 2 of the Sumptuous Embroidery class last spring won a second place ribbon at our county fair. There as no category specifically for hand embroidery so I entered it in the category called stamped or other hand embroidery, nothing quite like apples and ranges when it comes to judging!
