Open Thread: Embroidery

Hosted by embroidery threads
So - I'm taking up a new hobby.  I'm learning to embroider.

It's harder than it looks!  Trying to figure things out like "what's the optimal length of thread so I don't run out but also so it doesn't tangle every 5 seconds" - not easy.  Lot of trial and error.  And of course I'm a perfectionist when it comes to crafts, so when I look at the finished product and it's not PERFECT ALREADY I get frustrated :)

But!  I am learning.  I am getting better.  Soon I will be able to embroider pretty borders on all of my clothes.  And then one day?  TAPESTRIES.  (Shush.  I know proper tapestries are woven, not embroidered, the Bayeux "Tapestry" notwithstanding.  I don't care.)

Open thread!  Does anyone here embroider, or indulge in any of the other textile arts?  What sort of problems did you run into starting up, and how did you overcome them?  Is anyone taking up a new hobby of any kind?  What about it interests you, and are you having to get over any hurdles to get into it?  (Also, does "embroider" still look like a word to you, because it sure doesn't to me...)

Monday Reminder!  While I have fun coming up with pretty pictures and/or interesting “prompt” questions for open threads, you aren’t limited to those!  These threads are open - go wild, talk about whatever moves you!  (Just remember that this is still a safe space, please!)  

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
