Mini Win

As I predicted, I didn’t get to work on my Strike Out! quilt much this week, but I was able to pull it out for maybe an hour and do some embroidery.

On the bottom of the bowling ball, I embroidered the name “José” for the recipient of the quilt. I used my own hand writing as the script and three strands of a true red embroidery floss that I had on hand.

I’m very happy with how it turned out as this was my first try at real embroidery. I notice a few mistakes, like uneven stitch lengths and some areas not being totally straight, but I once read this philosophy and have tried to stay true to it.
If you can’t see the mistake if its galloping by on a horse, then you’re OK.
I can’t remember where I first saw it, but I like it! Anyway, what do you guys think?

Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to at least get the finger holes on the ball.
