The Hand Embroidery Blues
No, I really don't have "the blues."
I've just been doing free hand embroidery while listening to some jazzy/blues by
(If you care to listen, this is their rendition of Black Coffee)
(note...you always have the option to click pause/stop on my sidebar)
So, back to the embroidery.
Lately, I've been inspired by lavender...again.
Our mild weather as of late has been ideal for my lavender container plant.
I also find so much inspiration on the internet!
If I get stuck for an idea I just "Google" whatever it is I'm looking for and there it is.
In these pieces I used the french knot, stem stitch and back stitch on linen fabric.
If I don't know how to do a certain stitch I can usually find a helpful video on YouTube.
I haven't decided what to do with these pieces yet.
Possibly a pillow?
The hydrangeas are rather small, so maybe I could incorporate them into a fabric tag or I might try a decorative cuff. What do you think?
Thanks for dropping by.
I hope you are rested from the Christmas holiday rush and ready for a New Year!
See you soon,
