every embroidery should be a Beyoncé embroidery

Or: sometimes I need a break from the sewing machine

Embroidery samplers traditionally have inspirational phrases, so Beyoncé lyrics seemed appropriate. I really want to do a new one, I just need to find the right lyric. I'm endlessly impressed by ladies who do original creative work in embroidery, because it's so hard for me to force my brain to work that way. 

 Zig zags!

Embroidery on bags is much easier. Straight lines all the way.

I'm working on a new flower sampler though. I have high hopes that it'll turn out well. I'm working on large flowers this time. I have yet to find a really great source for embroidery stitches; I just Google different stitches and go for it. Any recommendations welcome.
