I'm going to let you in on a little secret..... up until now I have HATED embroidery.  Yes, I know it looks beautiful and all, but I don't like it (because I can't do it).
I however do like Lynette Anderson's Designs quilts, and the neat graphics that go along with her quilts and such (especially since lots of them have dogs on them).
Today "the" Lynette Anderson was hosted by Lori's Country Cottage to do a workshop.  So, of course I went!
Now, what did I learn from this? Well, I learned something that I sort of knew, but did not really pay attention to, and that is:  although I scribe with my right hand, I am not right handed.  Well, okay, so what?  Well, it turns out the reason I have hated embroidery was because for someone who is a closest "lefty" there are ways to hold the needle, thread, and of course fabric at angles to get your stitches correct!  
Thanks Lynette! 
 I may have another hobby instead of just socks to take with me to my son's extra curricular activities now.
This is what I got done so far today...
 Hope this inspires your own creativity...
