Embroidery 101

On Saturday, I got the chance to take an Embroidery class at Lauren's shop, Sew Modern with these lovely ladies! 

Just in case you don't recognize them, they are Cath & Kirsten aka Prints Charming!
Yes!  All the way from Australia!  :)

Check out all the loveliness they brought to inspire us. 
(There is some serious needlework going on over here!)

I don't know how to embroider.  I've always wanted to learn so I was very excited to get started!  :)

Class started and we got our choice of either one of these.

I went with this one because I always use white, and I wanted to try something different. 
Look!  They even provided a little booklet (like CliffNotes!)
Super Cute, huh?

I learned a bunch of new stitches:  blanket, daisy chains, couching and how to hide knots too! 

This is what I came up with at the end of class. 


Ok! Ok!  This is one of theirs...
Before we knew it, class was over and it was time to say good bye to this dynamic duo.
If you ever have the opportunity to take one of these classes, I highly recommend it!

Kirsten, me & Cath

Kirsten & Cath, I loved meeting you and taking your wonderful class. 
I promise to keep practicing and make you proud. 
Please come back again.

LA Loves you!


PS.  Thanks so much, Lauren for arranging such a great class!  :)
