the first thing i ever embroidered...i was over ambitious -_-'

Well one night, on a whim, I decided "you know what, I'm going to learn embroidery like in the old fashioned films"...Easier said than done. Because I wouldn't wait until morning to go buy the embroidery hoop, I improvised by holding fabric to a bottomless cake tin using elastic XD
I've since bought the hoop but still use normal thread rather than embroidery thread and whatever fabric I can get my hands on rather than the special embroidery stuff I'm supposed to use >_< I don't even know lot about it, and can't tell you what stitching technique I used...I'm clueless -_-'
But I hope to learn so I can seem less ignorant :P
(sorry for the poor quality pictures >_<)

The rose pattern I used is not my own, I found it online via google images (see the link below)

i don't use a embroidery hoop as well. You don't have to , it's only for people that like to pull the yarn too tightly.LOL
