Since I've been retired, I worry about our budget constantly, and keep thinking I should make my embroidery more of a business. So I had joined several embroidery facebook groups, thinking I would learn new techniques and styles. All it did was stress
A just-because gift for my mom for tomorrow. She is 86, and a three-year cancer survivor. I've learned not to take any day for granted. Design from Tattered Stitches. My picky machine loves her designs. This hasn't been pressed yet, but I was too e
