An embroidery update

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.IMG_4447

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.IMG_4459

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.
