I love it when stitchers send me pictures of the embroidery they’ve done, using embroidery patterns they’ve found here on Needle ‘n Thread! Here’s a stitched-up version of the Jacobean Circular Thing, embroidered by Marilyn.
The stitch selection and the colors are fun, aren’t they?! Thanks, Marilyn, for sending the picture!
It isn’t often that I actually see any finished work from the patterns posted on Needle ‘n Thread, so I tend to get all excited when I do! Marilyn made the point that pattern collections are like cookbooks. It’s fun to look at and dream about and plan to cook recipes from cookbooks, but whether or not we ever actually get around to doing all of them is another question. And yep, that’s how I am with patterns, too. I like them – I love making them available – I have ideas about them – but actually getting around to stitching all of them? It probably won’t happen!
Speaking of patterns, that’s what I’ve been working on lately – developing some embroidery designs to work with this summer. I’d like to do an online class with a kind of “sampler” I’m playing with. Anyone up for something like that? The new Ask & Share section (debuting next week) will have a dedicated space for interactive online classes. I won’t actually open that part up yet until I can provide a decent class, done right, but the space is built, anyway!
Now, about that workspace that needs organizing…. guess what I’m doing today?!
Hope you have a pleasant day!
