Three Berries Stumpwork Embroidery

Three Berries Stumpwork Embroidery

Here is another one of the embroidery patterns I created with people new to stumpwork in mind.  These little insects are probably the most fun to stitch! For this project, I took the help of Trish Burr’s book, Color Confidence in embroidery, which is a really great resource. I’ll say more about it later because …

Backyard Birds

Backyard Birds

It was a beautiful winter day on Sunday, so I’ve collected some photos of the little birds that come visit me.   I love these little birds. They get food here all year round.  The bullfinch is always a delight to see out there.  One of the bird clubs in told me about giving them …

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

This was the theme I chose for my January 2012 embroidery journal project. Little did I know that that theme would stretch through the whole year. Actually, I purposefully didn’t choose a theme. I didn’t want to limit myself. I wanted the freedom to make a project for each month as it came. Each of …

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 …

August 2012 Embroidery Journal Project

Hi all, My embroidery journal project is now complete!  I wanted to do something different this month, something that would be a little challenge of a different sort. So I chose a door to a magical, walled forest. I had to figure out ways to make the walls so they had dimension, and the door …

Frog Update

Frog Update

I got a question somewhere, what happened to the frog eggs I collected in the spring. Well, they are still alive, I am happy to report! We put them in a plastic box and filled it with water and some plant material.    I have to confess that I forgot about them for awhile. I …

Ladybugs!

Ladybugs!

These little guys must be one of the sure signs of summer. I don’t see many around here, but that doesn’t stop me from thinking about them. For this project I decided to do things just a little differently. That is my “process” for making a design. I made my pencil sketch as usual. My …

Cloudberries

Hi all, I’m back from family vacation time. I had a great time, but it’s always nice to be back to the regular schedule! I’m ready to go on some new projects with some new blogging energy. Hopefully the energy will sustain me for a good while into the future! I’ve been thinking to do …

Little White Flowers

Little White Flowers

I love the little flowers that spring brings. They are so pretty and delicate and quiet. I made a little photo collection of them. Perhaps you will find them to be inspirational. I will start off with my stitched white flowers. Stitched in wool, perhaps it is not the essence of delicate beauty, but white …

Weekend Update!

Weekend Update!

It’s been a few days now since the weekend passed, it’s almost the next one now, but I am finally sitting down to write this in any case.  First, I wanted to rephrase myself from my last post. I realized later that I hadn’t expressed myself really well. I said I have seen other stitchers …
