Still obsessed with embroidery. And quilting. And now my Cricut Maker.
I have made some progress on some embroidery projects…
The Purl Soho sampler got made into a little pillow (AKA “bed parasite” per my husband) that lives on our bed. I was really unhappy with one of the circles, so replaced with a bit of romance and gorgeous yellow fabric.
And then there is this one – from Tula Pink’s embroidery book. Slow but steady progress. And I still love the brick stitch. And still amazed and proud that I can do that many french knots. Living the dream.
I am taking a break from the giant rose to try and get this little guy done this week. I think the finished project with the stripes fabric will look cool. Or like bad decor from a cheap Florida hotel. We’ll see.
I also have been wanting to design my own patterns. We saw The Post a couple weeks ago and I loved it. Did a simple line drawing of Katherine Graham that I am hoping to make into a hoop.
And then this beautiful painting by Paul Klee came up in my daily calendar from the Met. This is begging to be turned into a gorgeous piece of embroidery with pastels and my beloved brick stitch.
So much to do… so little time. Goodnight for now, my lovelies.
