If you have been keeping up with my stories, you would have seen that I invested in an embroidery hoop lap stand this week. It has been a game changer for me. Being able to use two hands for certain stitches is not only quicker, but much better for my wrist health. I haven’t been able to work on Venus for months but now I can stitch her with ease. 💖
“Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love” - Stevie wonder
What an adorable nickname for the little one! 🐰
Eight of these hoops are still available in my shop! Hoping to have some additional listings in the next two weeks 💛 In the meantime, make sure to enter the giveaway in my last post! A winner will be selected this weekend.
How many of you have UFO's that you haven't worked on in over a year? This is a piece that I worked on just for me. It's been 12 months since I've worked on this. I think I need more me time!😂 I just love crazy patchwork because all the rules are thrown out. Each little space can be stitched with thread, beads or whatever you want. I used right angled pieces of fabric for this project, the lines can still be crooked but I think it adds to the quirkiness of it. Mmmnnn I might have to find some time this weekend to add some more to it. 😊 Have a great day!🌸
Sewing some banners tonight 🙌🏼 The entire family has been sick with various illnesses the last few days but I think we’re finally snapping out of it! Feels good to have enough energy to stitch and sew even if I’m still a little out of it 🙃
M O O D. // (Also known as the mood one feels after a busy day at work and a 320 pound pallet shipment is delivered at FIVE-THIRTY (closing time) and the guys equipment is broken so he can't actually *deliver it* and you have to unload it box by box....) So I've got no fucks left over and I definitely need a drink. Thank God it's almost the weekend, right??
🌞Happy almost Friday loves! 🌞Did you know that I custom embroider clothing for people? I have a certain amount of commission slots available every month through my lil business @windowandwing! Follow that page to get updates on commission availability and to see pics of what I’m embroidering for other people (or weaving or beading for the shop)! November slots are opening up soon!
Fall is basically here and I'm already in the swing of all the Autumn things:
❤️ Bustin' out the scarves and toques (yeah I'm Canadian 😆)
❤️ Baking up a storm with my little girl (vegan cinnamon buns are next in our list 😍😍)
❤️ And of course, warming up in cozy places like these, with a nice warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate, is basically top of the list everyday. 👌
Thanks to @identiteeshirtco for this beautiful photo of her #aquamarine crystal hoop - PLUS she framed it with a shadow box and it's just all kinds of amazing this way. 💕
A short snippet of my current #wip using @dmc_embroidery Blanc floss ➿ This is my last of the Sei Series 🌸 and this particular one holds a special place in my heart for various reasons that I’ll share once it’s complete 💗
When I started to make this into a pattern, I knew I wanted there to be a different colour scheme people could choose if they wanted, what I didn’t know was that I’d end up loving the secondary colour palette even more than the first. This finished hoop and the pattern are available @etsy if you are so inclined ✨
Day four of @britishstitchers week is current projects! I prefer to work on only one embroidery at a time, it keeps me motivated to get on with my current project so I can start my next idea! (Most of the time) Here is my latest leafy #wip that’s almost complete! And hiding is a sneak peek at my next hoop, a lovely floral commission! I can’t decide whether to outline my leaves or leave them as they are, what do you prefer? 🌿🌱🍃 #britishstitchers#britishstitchersweek
How amazing does @drnickers look rocking her new Josephine tee?! 😍🙏🌞 I love seeing clients wearing their @melaniekyles tees, and I especially love seeing them on a journey! So far they’ve been spotted in Canada, Poland, Spain, Edinburgh, London and of course NE 💕💕 very grateful to everyone who’s reached out to order and for sharing the love!
