Happy Monday to everyone.
I hope you had a nice weekend and did something you loved.
On to our next guest for
The Love of Hand Embroidery.
When I was younger, I used to love to embroider.
My Grandma Bea created wonderful pieces.
She made this for me when I was a teenager. It has been awhile...the dress used to be blue!
I was inspired to start again by Jane and the Presencia threads she introduced me to-
delicious thread colors and they slide through the fabric without snagging.
I went online and found a few patterns and went to work with the thread from Jane...
Found this fun, little tree on one of my favorites sites, Connecting Threads.
I have always wanted to try redwork and the Schlep bag, so used
Michelle Ridgway's cute, Winter Mate pattern for one of the squares and did both.
The stripe is a wonderful canvas from IKEA.
I wish I would have picked up more!
It still needs a lining, but Indecision isn't getting it done!
While I was waffling on the lining, I started this piece from Daisy Days.
This is an ongoing project, but I am thinking that I will appreciate those cheerful blossoms as we wait for the ice to melt,
and the green leaves to return to the trees again!
Thanks to Jane for this "Spark".
Please stop by and each Monday to check out more stitching!
