My First Original Embroidery

After building up so confidence with a kit and patterns from Sarah K. Benning, I attempted my own original landscape piece based on the photo below.

For a while I was spending every March visiting California while my partner and I were long distance. We were lucky to be able to visit so many of beautiful places Northern California has to offer. This is a photo of Point Joe on the 17 Mile Drive in Big Sur.

I really upped my french knot game while working on this hoop.

It now joins this other recently-finished embroidery from a Sarah K. Benning pattern. My three embroideries now hang is a small happy portion of our apartment.

My next goal is add embroider to my clothing. I recently bough a sewing machine that I'm excited to learn to use. I have my eyes on the 100 Acts of Sewing Shirt No. 1. I practiced a bit adding this little cutie crocus (you guessed it, another Sarah K. Benning pattern), to an old shirt of mine.
