Amongst all the other projects I've got on the go, ahem, (including 2 quilts that need basting), I found myself itching to do some more embroidery. There's just something so meditative about hand stitching and I find I can relax and just enjoy the process of using needle and thread like this. Often, in the midst of stitching I find solutions to other project ideas I've reached a standstill on. So, I feel less guilty stepping away from things on my sewing list, to indulge myself in a little embroidery project.
|This is the last bit of a small piece of rustic linen I found a few years back at a thrift shop. It has such an interesting texture that I wish I had more of it.|
Just a few more stitches and the embroidery part will be done. I'm already considering how I will finish this piece... I'm thinking it's going to need some patchwork. My scrap bin is calling me... but will have to wait until the end of the work day.
