Feedback from Caelia the Faire
I think you used DMC cotton? Why did you choose that?
I did use DMC cotton because it was familiar to me. The silk seemed very thin and looked weird (it was actually my embroidery that was weird). After doing this project, I now know that it was a bad choice because the thread frayed and broke really easily but because I had already started with it I had to continue.
Embroidery pattern choice?
I used one of the ones from the Flying Monkeys site. 1534-11d . Being new to embroidery I thought that this one looked like it would be fairly easy.
How long did this take each of you
A couple of weeks. I was fairly slow but once I got over the worry that I wasn't as good at embroidery as everyone else, I got into the swing of it and enjoyed doing it.
