I was rooting through my closet in the back, through the clothes I rarely wear & came across this shirt I embroidered as a teenager. The chain stitches are only about an eighth of an inch long! I could never do this now - the old eyes just wouldn't be able to handle it. When I was 16, I used to embroider jeans patches. I would go with my mom to antique shows (she was a dealer) and put my patches in a basket on her table and charge - get this - one dollar each!
I wonder how old others were when they first began to stitch and who taught them. Anyone else still have some oldies-but-goodies?
