Sarah, I found your blog a few weeks ago and I am so excited to learn from you! I love the way you have organized your tutorials. I am just finishing up a sampler of all of the running stitches you have posted (I experimented with the stitches in the bottom left corner), just wanted to share what I am learning and thank you!

Hey just wanted to show you an embroidery that I am working on that I could not have done without your site. It is not finished yet, but hopefully will be soon. It is of Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf. I got the design from urbanthreads.com
This is a current project I am working on, 6 x 7 inches. In this photo I am showing a close-up of nested stem-stitch and padded satin stitch (the eye of the Tiger). Perhaps six more hours of work and I will be finished with this one.
Sarah – you are truly amazing! Your website is phenomenal!
I haven’t embroidered since I was in grammar school (which was many years ago). I thought it would be like riding a bike, something that would come back to me naturally. But it wasn’t! I was all thumbs trying to make my french knots and finally figured them out thanks to your wonderful tutorials. The pictures are great and your insturctions are clear and concise which made me want to try different stitches
HEY SARAH! I was going through your lovely website and I must commend you on a wonderful job. The explanations are very simple and to the point. I wish you all the very best in the future and hope you continue to do th elovely work.
I have recently finished a floral design in chain stitch and since you are so good at your work I would like your opinion on it. Am posting it after this mail.
Lots of best wishes,
I am so happy to have found your site. I just got back into Embroidery from years ago as a young girl. I love your stitch guide. This will come in handy to refresh my mind and take me to a whole new level!!
Here is my most recent finished piece. I hand drew the image and made this for a good friend of mine who loves her Slot Games…
This piece has the most diverse stitches I know: Chain Stitch, Stem Stitch, French Knot, Satin Stitch, Back Stitch, Threaded Back Stitch & Running Stitch.
I look forward to your posts and learning from you. <3
I have embroidered a wall hanging. It is going to be gifted to one of our friend. I like to do lazy daisy flowers. That’s I have selected this design. I have posted the finished piece in my blog. Have a look. the link is
Here is a “Space Dog” that my son (5 years old) drew. I transferred it to the material and made it into an ornament to give to family for Christmas. Made of backstitches and French knots for the eyes. I used a knotted blanket stitch around the edge, but it was my first attempt – I am still learning that stitch.
Thank you so much for all your wonderful tutorials. I am new to embroidery and you have made this relatively ‘easy’! Its so nice to be able to have projects that can travel with me and a web site to help me with all of them! Thanks again!
