I have enjoyed hand embroidery ever since I was a child, and it appears that it is still quite popular. There is something deeply satisfying about making small, even stitches that transform a piece of fabric into a miniature work of art.
The delightful spring fairy above is one of the many patterns available from LiliPopo, on Etsy. I enjoyed every stitch, and even purchased (finally!) a light box, to make the pattern transfer easier. My little embroidery is finished as a pillow, with a hanging tab on top to make it easier to display.
I have several more patterns, so I must get back to stitching!
