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 …

WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday

Nothing wrong with being a day late as usual here. I’m working on two projects, although one is on the sidelines while waiting for more crewel colors. My new dragonfly stumpwork is getting all the attention while waiting. The camera pretty much hates focusing on the fabric when there is too much dimension, so I’ve …

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 …

Ladybug Wreath Stumpwork Embroidery

Ladybug Wreath Stumpwork Embroidery

This is another of one of the stumpwork designs I made this past year with beginners in mind. The ladybugs are such fun to make. I love the dimensional effect of them. It always makes me want to get busy making more, just talking about them, and soon I will, but first a few more …

Pink Flower Stumpwork

Pink Flower Stumpwork

This project was developed with the idea of making a series of stumpwork designs that would give beginners practice with certain techniques.

This one I made last year. The sides of the box are made out of Timtex which you can use to make all sorts of shapes. These two pictures are when it was in the WIP stage. As you see, I used all sorts of fibers and fabrics to get different textures. And here is …

January Embroidery Journal Project

January Embroidery Journal Project

Here I am finally! This time I have my embroidery journal project along with me. This year I decided to give myself more freedom with the size of the project to allow the size to suit the project instead of the other way around. I like the 4 x 4 inch format though, so I …

Let them eat cake!

Let them eat cake!

I’m surfacing again! The cross stitch projects are done for now, and I’m working on some new things. One of them is something I started many months ago. I ran into some road blocks because my idea for how to assemble it didn’t work, so I needed a little time to figure it out. Or …

August 2012 Embroidery Journal Project

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 …
