    I have a brand new t shirt that I wore once recently and it got a bleach spot on it! My plan is to embroider something over it, when I get around to it.

    I have dyed some vintage linens, and they would be gorgeous with embellishments.

    I’m a crazy quilter at heart, so I suppose it could be said that I like to embellish pretty much everything. My latest interest has been in making purses.

    I have actually never done any of that embellishing. But I know I’d like to try this!

    I don’t adorn anything – yet! The style in this book is really appealing. I think I would start by adding decoration to my jacket – then would add a little to other projects as I make or buy them. Beautiful stitching – really appealing to me. Thank you for putting my name in the hat for your drawing.
