Topic: Paper Embroidery
A couple of months ago I was looking at blogs or catalogs or something and saw a poinsettia I thought would make a great stitching pattern. I even took notes and made a sketch in a notebook. When I was at my computer a few weeks later I made a pattern off the top of my head and stitched it up.
My initial impression was "I'm not impressed." It wasn't nearly as neat as I had envisioned it.
Fast forward a few more weeks and I opened the sketch notebook for something and ran across the original notes. No wonder I wasn't impressed - it wasn't what I had sketched!
So I went back to the computer and reworked the pattern to match the sketch and - WOW - what a difference.
Now THIS was exactly what I had in mind. I would like to use burgundy for the lines in the petals but did not have any thread that color on hand. Maybe in version 3.0.
