Yesterday I decided that as it was Sunday, it would be acceptable to stay in my pyjamas and start working on some embroidery ahead of the ATC swap I mentioned in a post last week.
I really wanted to learn a new technique so spent several hours (unusual for me as I don't have much of an attention span) trying out some drawn thread work which involves, as the name suggests, drawing out either the warp or weft threads to leave a ladder. The threads are then gathered or bound to create decorative patterns.
For a first attempt I couldn't be happier with the result and I seem to have a little more patience with this method so I'll work it into some of the projects I have coming up.
Anyone else learning a new skill? Or have a particular technique which speaks to you?
