Latest Craft Obsession



Someone pointed me toward Sublime Stitching, and I've been embroidery-obsessed ever since. This isn't actually one of their patterns - it's a "Bonnie Bonnet" pattern I picked up at the store. I'm using it for practice while I wait for my books from Sublime Stitching to come so I can learn some fancier stitches and start some bigger projects. In the meantime, I'll finally master the french knot and end up with some new kitchen towels.

Cool! I definitely don't have the patience for that!

This kind of embroidery actually moves a LOT quicker than cross-stitching, which is what I've done before - I'd been losing patience with that. This is a lot more rewarding. I've probably only spent about half an hour so far on the towel design. I've spent more time sorting out floss colors and figuring out stitches!
