Mostly making: Bayeux tapestry sampler

I love embroidery! It's so relaxing, and I enjoying seeing how the experience and personality of the stitcher comes out in the finished designs - I think the tentative, wobbly first stitches of the beginner look just as charming as the perfect, neat stitches of the lifelong expert.

When I found this Bayeux tapestry crewel picture on The Making Spot, I was so excited and just had to download the project. Read on to find out how I'm getting started with my own mini Bayeux scene...
