delicate embroidery, Grandma J's home filled with beautiful hand sewing & stitchery. "Mary Francis" always surrounded herself with beautiful handmade things. I beleive my sister inherited that trait of needlework & immagination from her.
complex stitches made up of smaller parts. Try sewing a decorative stitch withe the zigzag machine, then further embellishing with hand embroidery. I may have to try this some daywhen I get really adventurous-hope I can learn to do these stitches.
