So knitting is not for me, and probably not crochet either. I need something to do with my hands because regular old sewing can get mighty boring. So I've decided to take up embroidery.

I sat down last night to do some test stitches and this is what happened. It took a couple hours and I covered a lot of the basic stitches. I think that maybe I'm going to make fake inspirational pillows and such. They're fun!

I drew on the words with a pen, and then covered the lines with stitches. The rest of the work was freeform, hence the crookedness!

So here's to a hobby I can easily do when my boyfriend is hogging the TV and gaming systems! :D

P.S. Pictures are a little weird. Have yet to figure out how to get along with camera.

This looks like a cake .............&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Maybe this is a sign of destiny ?? Maybe you should try patisserie (pastry ?) instead ??? &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;=o)&lt;br/&gt;<br/>
Cake decorating is definitely not my thing. :P I have tried and failed several times with that. But it does look a little like a cake in the hoop, haha.
