Hand Embroidery Network

Yes, I've been playing around with a little embroidery and working on some redwork, but don't get the wrong idea from this post and think that I have another new thread obsession. I recently discovered the Hand Embroidery Network and was so impressed with the information about hand embroidery that they are providing that I just had to share it! This wonderful new blog is providing instructions for a different embroidery stitch each day, emboidery tips, tutorials, patterns and project ideas as well as an online embroidery community. There is a wealth of stitching knowledge within the pages of HEN for anyone who has the urge to pick up a needle and a strand of DMC floss!

I love their blog!!! I discovered it on the sidebar of another blog (can't remember which) and now I have it bookmarked. Their instructions are so easy to follow....much better than any I've seen in a book..and these are free!!! I am doing a color wheel embroidery project as suggested by Park City Girl, and HEN has been invaluable. It has been fun to pull out the DMC floss and play around.

Thanks for the link. Before I did any sewing I loved to embroider. The little stitcheries I do are fun, but are not quite the same. Maybe this site will give me some incentive.

Well at least the urge is still there for you and hasn't disappeared totally.
