The Art of Embroidery

When I was around 12 years old my mother taught me how to embroidery.  I still embroidery today.  To me it is art that is done with a needle and thread.  I believe that this is a skill that all young girls should learn.  There is so much that you can do and make with this art.  Not just pillowcases, but tablecloths, doilies, t-shirts, totes, art for the wall, anything.  I encourage all of you to give it a try.  The stitch that I used is the back stitch, however there are many more stitches that you can use.  If you embroider let me know what you have done.
