Felted Crossover

While I admire the beauty of the stitches in Kristin's books on embroidery, the perfectionist in me is unsatisfied with how sloppy my stitches look. Still, I love the motifs and illustrations throughout all of Kristin's published works.

When experimenting with creating pieces of flat felt, I turned to Colorful Stitchery for inspiration; this design is on the inside jacket.

Everyday Is a Winding Road

A quick pic of the latest embroidery I've done. A simple monogram on a bag that I made for a friend

My newest project in the works. Although mine will be a bit more rustic and not so uptown and shiny.
Thanks so much for the inspiration Kristin!!
The Stitchalong Begins

I know there are many stitchers out there who have discovered the joy of hand-embroidery. I have been lucky to have two books published which feature my stitchery designs. I loved doing these books, developing the projects, working with the threads and the fabrics. I feel fortunate to have had this opportunity to share with others a craft I have enjoyed since I was a young girl.

I have heard from so many people who are having fun learning and creating with stitchery. I thought it would be fun to have a forum to share the colorful hand-stitched projects you all are making. I hope you'll join me soon.
