Embroidery Site

I just found this marvelous site for embroidery patterns! My 101 List has an embroidery project on it, and this set of patterns would be just perfect!

Is embroidery the same thing as needlepoint? What is embroidery? Is is making pictures with stiches?

Tammy said...

Mrs. R--according to Wikipedia,

"Needlepoint is a form of canvas work created on a mesh canvas."

While embroidery is:
"the art or handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with designs stitched in strands of thread or yarn using a needle."

Hope that helped! I'm not an expert on embroidery! :D

Yes, what a neat site. Jessica mentioned it on our blog a few weeks ago and I have visited many times since. I'm thinking of doing some redwork embroidery tea towels.

Wow! That's a neat idea to use it for cake decorating! Way cool! =)

Mrs. R, I wouldn't consider counted cross stitch to be needlepoint.
