Back in the Spring I happened upon a new stitching project run by Helen Birmigham of Untangled Threads. I joined the Stitchbook Collective and started work on the starter pack. My first love is embroidery, but it has taken a back seat for the last twelve years as grandchildren arrived and I started knitting, crochet and sewing for them. This blog moslty covers the things I make for them.
A few years ago I started a new blog for embroidery but it too went on the back burner. I have deleted all ( half dozen) posts and started it all over so I can write about my current embroidery journey.
I worked on the Untangled Threads starter pack, and if by any chance you are interested here is the link to my blog A voice through stitch , where you can see what I did!
The pack had lots of materials and there fabric scraps left over, so I made myself a little needle book.
And the inside. The inside is wadding from my quilt, and the centre is stitched down and then I couched a random piece of wool left over I think from Monkey’s face that was just sat on my table.
I have since started on the Texture pack for the stitchbook collective, and I am loving every stitch and every minutes I spend on it. There may well be scraps leftover but we have already been told to hang onto them for future projects, not to fret though as I have lots of other scraps for future Scrap Happy Projects.
