Yes, that’s stunning! is it hard to do??
Well i am a beginner to embroidery with Alzheimers diagnosed 4 years ago - so it cannot be that difficult. It is a sitting down sport to replace 3 day eventing, running, solo backpacking around the world and all the other things I can no longerndo.

I’m pleased you’ve found something enjoyable to do - must have Been awful and such a grief to have to leave those other activities 😭😭

What sort of thing did you start with? I’d like to give it a go. I’m not good at sitting still so like something to do with my hands. Am in during the evening with mum and can waste far too much time on the screens!

I started with a sampler pack from AMazon ages ago and then lost interest for a while

I drew this free hand onto linen and then embroidered it. I wanted to try out some different stitches but keep forgetting how to do them. Anyhow I think it looks ok

That is great @Dunroamin. I think because we know where the mistakes are, we are really critical of our own work. I sometimes do calligraphy and always think how rubbish it is. When I see it with fresh eyes some time later it looks much better.
You are obviously a talented artist.
