Embroidery Experimentation

I have been seeing lots of inspiring little embroidery things online and decided to give it a shot by myself.  First I had a go with some freehand writing and other little embellishments on this little motivator I made.  It turned out ok, I think I want to make it again but with different colors and fabrics and stuff.

It seems too dark to me.  After realizing I pretty much only had 8 colors of embroidery floss which mostly consisted of hot pink, black, bright greens and a few browns, I decided to go to the store and build a small library of colors to work with in the future.  It was fun picking out some colors and sorting them into this handy container.

And I was so excited about all my new floss that I had to make something right away.  I found a cool image of a machine embroidered mandala online and decided to make one of my own.  This is the mandala in the works with all my floss too…

…And here is the finished mandala :)
