painting with needle and thread

Call me old-fashioned but I really want to learn how to do embroidery. But not the old-timey embroidery that conjures up images of old ladies sitting straight-backed in front of a loom stitching classic samplers. I want to learn embroidery and give it a modern twist--use it to add sweet little embellishments to things and create some art.

Thankfully, good ol' Martha has a handy How-To that shares all the basics of embroidery and teaches the simple stitches.
