Oh boy…at the end of May I enthusiastically started this weekly feature and then life happened and here I am in August posting week 2. What can I say, I’m happy to be back at it!
When I started out I drew some straight lines on white fabric to work the stitches on. boring! What was I thinking? I got to the second piece and couldn’t take it anymore so I did start to stitch outside the lines a bit, but it still just wasn’t fun enough (although I did love a couple of the stitches I got to in this session!)
I did a little poking around online and realized I should be making an embroidery sampler…and so I drew something out to begin working on this week. Now I can do outline stitches on the grid and fill in all the little boxes with things as I go. Yay, much better!
