Here are my first serious attempts to embroidery stitches. The red stitch is "herringbone" and the green is buttonhole stitch.
I spent about two hours doing that, oh, I did same stitches on a practice sheet first. I am slow, much slower than in knitting or crocheting. Somehow I like this craft, for now, after I saw a freeform project done entirely with embroidery stitches. Hey, I could try that. First I should just sit down and start from the beginnig, not from the middle, like I usually do with my knitting and crocheting.
