Another day sitting at the computer researching embroidery techniques has brought to mind my very first embroidery.
It was a Penelope 'Tapestry' kit of these two Golden Pheasants.
Not really tapestry as it is needlepoint, but at the age of 14 I knew no better. It was a printed canvas with wool threads, the embroidery version of painting by numbers.
As it was my first embroidery project it was probably a bit ambitious but I was never one to give up on a challenge. And it was the start of what has been a life long love of stitch in all its forms.
What was your first embroidery?
