A long term project started

I am inspired by John Lennon’s line drawings to learn embroidery.  These are my first real attempts.  I am thinking these can go into a quilt for myself.  I haven’t made any quilts just for me yet – I really like making them for others.  I saw John’s drawings in a book years ago and thought, “Ooh, if I ever learn to embroider, I could start with these”.

They are relatively simple and casual.  The mistakes I make on these are not as noticeable as they would be on a fancy piece.

I love them all, but my favorite drawing is the one above.  It has never failed to make me smile.

I did these in the simple back or outline stitch. I found a video showing how to take this easy stitch from Needlerific
