My blog is devoted to describing the progress of my embroidery, and the calligraphy and illumination work that I used to do.
I have spoken about only recently haven taken up embroidery but yet- here are photos of work dating back to 1990 (and even school in the 80s!). But they were Bargello pieces. I didn't know split stitch, or stem stich, or anything else like that, so I didn't regard myself as being able to do embroidery.
It wasn't until November 2007 that I seriously took up embroidery and starting learning what is in all the books and around the Net, and got some proper supplies :-)
