I've been really into embroidery lately. I'm still very much a beginner, but each week I've set aside time to work on small projects and am getting a little better every day. Since I've started embroidering, I've been keeping an eye out for inspiring embroidery projects and am especially drawn to mixed media ones. Embroidering linen on a hoop is great, don't get me wrong (in fact, embroidering linen on a hoop is pretty much the only kind of embroidering I do), but I really like to see projects that mix a needle and thread with something new.
Doe-C-Doe (blog, etsy) does mixed media embroidery with old McCall's patterns that's totally eyecatching! You can see more of her work
