Over the weekend, I'm going to practice some new stitches including that woven stitch in the birdhouse there.
Some places to find stitch instruction:
Have anything to add?

Do you know about welovefrenchknots? New blog by BariJ about embroidery. You should be a guest on it! She's got some how-to videos, too.

Helen in Australia does stitching Sundays where she teaches new stitches on Sundays.
And Betz mentioned Bari's website. Love it!

Just looked at one of the sites for how to do French knots. Thank you!
Weather in this part of the world is wonderful with
the most beautiful sunshine and clear blue sky and record temps as well. The sun rise in the mornings has been stunning. Have a lovely weekend.

You're gonna love the woven stitch - I taught it to my friend, Julie, and she really likes it. It sure looks great on that little house, doesn't it?
Best way to learn French Knots, Sarah, is to do about 24 of them all at one time.....
You will really get the feel of them and it's like riding a bicycle - you can do it every time!
GREAT sites for stitching - all of them!

The Readers Digest Complete Guide to Embroidery Stitches is a great resource. I found a copy at my local library and I must say I was plesantly surprised at it's usefulness.

opened the page and there was blue and yellow...one of my favorite combinations, but I seem to rarely do embroidery in those colors...

I can really recommend Bustle and Sew blog...and she has just put together a free downloadable book on tips and hints for stitchery! There is a free newsletter and a subscribable monthly ezine too. Lots of delightful embroidery patterns and things to do with it. Gill:)
