Take A Stitch Tuesday
I've been feeling the pull to start hand stitching some creative bits lately. And so I've joined in with Sharon B's Take a Stitch Tuesday 2012.
Each week she chooses an embroidery stitch which the participants then work in any fashion they choose. All levels of participants can join in - stitch instructions are included on the site, along with some nudges in how to use them in your own designs.
There's a flickr group here, a facebook group here, and a Stitching Fingers group here.
Week one is the Fly Stitch. I've started with some simple overlapping stitches in variegated silks. My background is some Pebeo paint sun-printed muslin leftover from other projects. I kept it simple in a small Sajou embroidery hoop, thinking perhaps I'll work all my efforts this year in this size/format.
Anyone else having a go this year?
