Wednesday's will be dedicated to getting creative. In the 1970's I use to embroider I was never very good at it and had a hard time with some of the stitches especially the french knot and I have yet to master that stitch.
A few months ago I started buying the supplies needed to start doing embroidery again. I am embracing my rustic simplistic style of embroidering. I started working on some dish towels for my daughter for Christmas....I didn't get them done in time, in fact I am still working on them. My daughter loves the 50's, 60's Rock-a-Billy so that will be my theme.
The first piece I am doing is a 1950's Fan Dancer which I found at Sublime Stitching. I have two of their books and have bought some of their transfers and threads. They are fun and light-hearted.
This is the piece I am working on now
Another site that has useful information on embroidery and beautiful pieces of what I consider Art is Mary Corbet's Needle 'N Thread I also subscribe to Mary Corbet's You Tube videos and email newsletter. The videos have helped me remember stitches and learn new stitches. I enjoy sitting on the sofa watching TV and embroidering.
I am looking forward to a creative 2013.
Until Next Time,
