I have no doubt that I can do it. Just need to draw something up. Probably abstract floral based on Jacobean patterns.. Nothing too complicated. My brother the artist suggested a cityscape. I could do it on graph paper or maybe better yet on the iPad and print it. Then put the fabric over it and Trace it with some carpenter's chalk we have around (maybe --if not I will order some kind of marker). This looks like a fun project. Suggested by Lorelei.

Whatever design you come up with, don't delete it if you decide not to use it. You can go back some weeks or months later and figure out a way to modify it and improve it. This if what I did with teaching myself how to design for this type of embroidery. I kept a stack of tentative designs next to my rocking chair, and looked through them while I ate breakfast. Some were so dull that no amount of fixing would save them. But several were improvable. The more I tried to design, the better I got at it.
