It's just so relaxing. Found a link to this site that offers free tutorials on stitches and lots of other information for hand embroidery. I watched three videos and found out all sorts of things that I've been doing wrong. I'm been a make-it-up-as-I-go-along-girl so far, but it inspired me to learn the true techniques. If you've been wanting to start, you'll find the info over there helpful and it'll keep you from having to re-learn your bad stitching habits :).
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
