hi there, just wanted to say, your samples are gorgeous...ive just started a creative embroidery course and cant do half the stuff u've demonstrated here! real eye candy for a sore student...would you be so kind as to write a short "how-to" with each picture? anything that an ignoramus like moi could learn from? much appreciated, and best of luck w/ ur work!
