Oeps! There is very little mentioned here. Did I think I was good at embroidering, I need to think again. I am a beginner in this form of art, although I embroidered much! Time to start collecting the local techniques.

On my travels I am on the look out for new techniques and they will appear here. The link will direct you to a blogpost where I go more into detail about what I learned and experienced.
