Have you ever wanted to try embroidery? It is something that you can easily teach yourself and most of the good embroidery books on the market have a glossary of stitches and lots of simple projects. One I bought recently is Sew and Stitch by Alyssa Thomas.
Right now Sublime Stitching has their Petite Embroidery Kit available at the pre price-hike price. It has all the tools, floss and pattern that you need to get started. The only additional thing you’ll need is something to embroider! If you want you can buy the linens from them too.
Have fun. Embroidery is a wonderful, creative outlet that you can carry with you anywhere an pick up anytime.
