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. …

Christmas Florals Embroidery

Christmas Florals Embroidery

I’m spending the week attempting to catch up on things, but still so far behind, and getting more behind. I spent a week stitching these Christmas Floral Embroideries, which was definitely a week well spent, but I let all else slide while I did that. I am so not a multi-tasker. I was trying to …

Winter Wreath Embroidery

Winter Wreath Embroidery

This is one of my designs I did some years ago. I posted it this week on Instagram, and wow what a response I got. The most likes of anything I have posted so far. It’s funny, but sometimes you just really cannot predict what people will react to. Projects that I think are great …

Summer Hare Crewel Embroidery

Summer Hare Crewel Embroidery

The Hare Crewel Embroidery has been a long favorite of mine. It was fun to design and stitch. The motif seemed to fun not to play with some more. Way too fun! So I’ve made a follow up in the series, yes, it will be part of a series, yet to be created, but I …

Squirrel Wreath Crewel Embroidery

What a busy stitching week it’s been, and it’s not over yet! There is still time to work on more projects before it’s done. This will be the second finish of the week. It almost makes up for last week’s lack of finishes.    These colors were truly a pleasure to work with, so warm …

Christmas Kitty Embroidery

An embroidery I did last week. I finished it into a little quilted wall hanging with a vintage lace border. I’m trying to actually make some of my embroideries into something as I finish them instead of just throwing them on the pile for later. The pile is impossibly big now!!!!

May 2012 Embroidery Journal Project

May 2012 Embroidery Journal Project

I’ve returned! My apologies for the extended away time. I just needed to think about what direction I am headed with my embroidery and other related things including this blog. I’m going to shift the focus a little to include my other thoughts and work regarding what inspires me and what else I create other …

A new crewel project

A new crewel project

I often seem to need some time to re-group after finishing a bigger project like the dragonfly. Most of the time I am too busy stitching to plan out what is next. I did some stitching over Easter on another project I have going, but not much was done. I was taking advantage of the …

The Hare Crewel Embroidery

The Hare Crewel Embroidery

This is my finish for the week: As you see more crewel embroidery. This has a little bit of spring feeling to it, which is good timing because the weather is improving quickly! I didn’t really plan it, but this to me has a little bit of old time sampler feeling. I like that. I …

Creature of the Deep Blue Sea

Creature of the Deep Blue Sea

I’ve been busy working on more wool stitching! My subject this time in an octopus. I wanted a semi-realistic shape so I did a photo search and got a feeling for how the head should be. The tentacles are a bit exaggerated, but I wanted them long so you get the feeling of them floating …
