A new version of stashery for me today
Mmmmm don't you just wanna eat all those luscious colours up? I know I do! Which is why I couldn't resist them when I saw them at Tapestry Craft on Saturday. I hadn't planned on going there but wouldn't you know it, Jamie left his car in the city on Friday night - a whole other story there - and so a trek into the city was required to pick it up. So you know, I just thought I'd pop in there ... and Lincraft ... and the Tea Centre ...
Anyway back to the thread - I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with this since my only embroidery so far has been my little Owl friend Percy. I am finding the whole hand quilting thing quite meditative so I thought perhaps I might enjoy a spot of embroidery. Also just last week the lovely Tania at Myrtle & Eunice embroidered one of her sons (amazing) drawings onto a t-shirt and Amanda at Soule Mama has done the same onto cushions which I think is a super idea.
So now where to start ... lots of the embroidery patterns in the shops seemed a bit - dare I say - daggy? Perhaps old fashioned is more like it but not in a cool, vintage-y way if you catch my drift?
What have you tried?
Oh and before I go here is a new method of storing embroidery thread. I'm always one for an organising 'system' .. not that you'd know it looking at the state of my house ...
All tucked up and cosy in their little beds!
Well I'm off for a few days up to my Mum and Dad's place with the kids. I'll be checking in but not posting for a bit.
Enjoy your week!
(p.s Yay Julie! Go the Mum!)
