My latest obsession? Embroidery. Let me count the ways.
I ordered in Stitch Step by Step on the recommendation of a coworker.
I also ordered in a copy of Stitched Gifts, the cutest looking book. I love the idea of personalized embroidering. So simple yet effective!
Finally, I did a bit of practising today using Wild Olive’s swirly leaf pattern, found in her tutorial for Stem and Split Stitches. The hot pink fabric was perhaps a bad choice for the eyes, and I’d advise you not to stare at it too long. It’s not very obvious in the picture, but I used very light grey, pale pink, and pale mint green thread.
And it’s such a portable craft too! I can’t wait to continue… on lighter coloured fabric.
