When I was pregnant, the last few months I had to be inactive because of pregnancy induced high blood pressure so I made a neat crewel embroidery from a kit that I bought. I had it framed it looked so nice and when I moved to Florida I entered it in the Strawberry Festival (like the State Fair) and won second place. Can you believe that? All I did was follow directions. I started embroidery when I was a little girl. My mother used to let me embroider hankies and pillow cases, stuff like that. Once you learn the basic stitches you can be very creative in making your own designs and patterns. I have not done embroidery in a long time, but this conversation brought back some memories for me and makes me want to do something! Thanks ladies.
