I would love to make things like beautiful embroidered cousin covers, I have seen some lovely designs. I think it may be a bit advanced at the moment as I don't even know any stitches grin What's the best place to learn?

Try search on ebay for a cheap kit, which has everything with it. To learn how to do the different stitches, look on youtube.

Cross stitch is a good place to start- you only really need a couple of stitches to start. You can get cheap card kits on e bay (they're often sold on freebies from magazines) just check that they come with all of the threads you need- cards are usually quite easy and you have something to show for a first attempt!!!

Great ideas, thanks.

What about learning appliqué? Using shapes like birds, flowers or letters.
