Back to Basics

Tree Woman, embroidered detail by Susan Leschke
March 29, 2008 is the birthdate of this blog and I'm shocked that over seven years have passed! I've posted about trips, projects, recipes, various moves and life events. I've participated in blog hops, gotten to know many interesting people and it's been fun.

It's time to make a few changes that I think will create a better blog. As many of you know my passion is textile arts and so that is what I've decided to focus on.

It is difficult to create anything without some fundamentals and I've been thinking about embroidery lately so let's start with that. A beginner to a novice will find some great advice at these links - I've been embroidering for about four decades and I'm going to test out some new transfer ideas.  Enjoy the little tour and brush up on a few basics.

Thanks for visiting me the other day! I'm always happy to see a post from you, and I'm in love with embroidering of all kinds! In fact, if a day goes by and I didn't thread a needle, I'm not happy. I'm looking forward to your new focus. Hugs!
