Divergent Interests: Stitchery

I haven’t been too into garment sewing, lately. I’m knitting a baby sweater and finishing my mitts while at work. But, mostly, I’ve been drawn to a series of differing craft disciplines and garment ideas.

Stitchery

I’m not sure what brought it on, but I’ve been falling in love (again) with embroidery. Maybe it was commiserating with my coworker about our mutual lack of skill at it….

I often find something I previously struggled with totally easy after a break from it. Will taking up stitchery, again, be the same? I brought some of those metal purse frames to make myself a little something. As I have TONS of floss and a few hoops and borrowed technique books from the library, I’ve managed to limit my new supply intake to just the frames. I’m rather proud.

  1. Your Pinterest boards look lovely! I’d love to give embroidery a go but would need to buy too much stuff which I can’t afford at the moment. Looking forward to seeing your creations!

  2. I’ve been reading your blog for a while but I don’t think I’ve ever commented. It seems like you are all over the place with your craftiness and I love it! I thought I was the only one who was not just a knitter or just a cross-stitcher, but actually a knitterseamstresspaintercrossstitchercandlemakerneedlepointer! I love seeing your craftiness come to life – keep it up.
