And as if I'm not over extended already, I'm learning Chikan Embroidery, from Anita at artistic fingers. It is an Indian embroidery that is a form of whitework. Check out the links, if you are interested. The class is closed but all the lessons are posted on her blog. I'm working on the double back stitch which is the first lesson. The back looks like a herringbone stitch and creates a shadow on the front of the cloth.
