Great job! Wow, that was quick! That's one reason I love embroidery...it can be a wonderful form of instant gratification. Really nice job. :)

Thanks! I really need to get working on improving the quality and variety of my stitches so that I can work my way up to the amazing Austen-inspired stitchery over at Sampler Girl!

What a neat site...I especially love her Austen-quote samplers. Cool!

Me, too! I really want to make the "A single man in possession of a good fortune..." sampler and her "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you" sampler. Two of my favorite quotes from my favorite book :D

Hey, that's awesome :D Here's a site I could have directed you to if I'd been thinking - there are videos of various different stitches. The basics are mixed in with the more complicated stuff, but there's tons there. Another place you can get info from is here. It's just pictures there, but they're really clear illustrations, and she only focusses on the basics, which is nice if you're just learning. (I started embroidery with patterns from here and using her tutorial pages.)

Oooh, thank you! I can't wait to improve on my stitchery - I'm itching to get my hands on a pattern or two from http://thesamplergirl.com/. She's got AUSTEN-INSPIRED cross-stitch!!! *oggles*
