Project for February 2018

Project for February 2018

I’ve been continuing my embroidery journal projects. I was a little slow getting going with February, in fact it was almost over! But I’m glad I made an effort and got it done. Doing these is a good habit for me. I get to play around with different ideas inspired by what’s happening around me. …

Creating into 2018

It’s that time of year to think of the changes we want to make to ourselves and our lives in the new year. I’m sure you know how it goes by now. Goals, resolutions, new schedules, all this is going to help us change for the better. It’s not quite enough though, it never is. …

May 2013 Project

May 2013 Project

It took me a little while to decide on a theme. I wanted to do something that reminded me of the softness of spring. New leaves, new flowers, the warmth of the sun as it gets higher in the sky each day, the sweet songs of the birds as they mark out their territory. There …

I have finished my embroidery journal project for this month. I had the idea at the end of February, so I went ahead and started it. I got this idea from watching the birds, of course, as I often do. These blackbirds love to eat fruit. Apples are a favorite, but I think they like …

November Embroidery Journal Project

November Embroidery Journal Project

Back to stitching. For this month, I wanted to make a try at capturing a little piece of the forest around here where I live. This time of year, it’s dark and wet and gray. But not in the trees. They are pines and fir trees, green all year. Then there is the moss. It’s …

October 2012 Embroidery Journal Project

I am ahead this month! Actually it wasn’t planned, but I was working on this little project and since it was the same size as the others, I decided it could be my journal project. I started it out as something of a study in using different yarns to help add interesting textures and surfaces. …
