What is...

The easiest project you've ever done and what was the most difficult? 

My little angel earrings are the easiest. It litterally takes me 5 minutes to make 1 pair!

The hardest was probably one of the large embroidered pictures I made for my mother. They were kits but took a long time and with subtle differences in the colors of threads, there were times it was frustrating because I'd choose the wrong color and have to take it all out--thus making it really touchy as to whether or not I would have enough thread to finish the project. I don't have any pictures of them but I have some of the small ones that I kept. 

The ones I did were this style but much bigger. These are about 10" high and 12" wide. The ones I made for her were about 20"high by 24" wide and 40x40. I have one project going now but I am having a VERY hard time finding embroidery kits anymore! I can find TONS of cross-stitch and even some needlepoint but no crewel embroidery. simple frown

LOL Well, although I would prefer different wording simply so no one else is offended, I do appreciate the compliments! I think we always admire the work of people when we have attemped to create something in the same medium and been unable to. I know I am that way with knitting and crocheting and painting. The embroidery looks like a lot more than it actually is. The kits come with a printed picture and only certain accents and pieces are embroidered. I have done some others that are more detailed but these ones weren't that bad. 

I would love to see some of your work. I'm always looking for a new passion. LOL
