Working on my latest design for Trellis & Thyme - the ‘Witches Brew’ embroidery pattern! I’m loving this beyond words… PS: I’m stitching on Andover Chambray in black (from Fabric.com.) It’s woven with black and white thread, giving it a linen-like effect.
Stitch stitch stitch…I love making those neat little stitches. And I adore the way the quilted portions feel! So drapey and cuddly and snuggly. If you haven’t hand-quilted a quilt yet, do it. It feels completely different from a machine-quilted quilt (which tend to be more stiff.) Yes, I know it takes an age and a day, but quilters are not exactly instant-grat folk, are they? :)
Just a cloudy quiet evening, stitching our latest design (she’s a sweetheart,) and looking forward to some late-night cross stitching. Needle and thread are both my work and my mediation, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today is such a brilliant day. The leaves are beginning to fall off the crepe myrtle, the air is chill, the zinnias are in full bloom, and the coffee tastes fantastic. I just finished another design for Trellis & Thyme - a hand-stitched barn owl. Super happy with this fellow! He’ll be in the pattern shop this week. :)
