So, just in case you missed a few of my more practical posts this year, I made a 'best of' selection for you.
At the start of the year I posted some ideas of how to embroider a 'basket-like' effect. On (or around) my birthday I posted a Free-bee pattern. I re-acquainted myself with the Stem Stitch and made a tutorial for you. There were lots of useful comments for storing patterns (both printed and pdf patterns) on my post about Pattern Hoarding. And there will definitely be a follow up to my Embroidery Aha moments post as I have a lot more floss and stitch tips to share so look out for that in 2014.
Wishing you all a safe New Years eve and I hope to see you all back here in 2014!
