I have been busy embroidering again. And I love it.
I found this darling pattern and wanted it on this dishtowel-turned-sewing machine cover. I used my standard stitches like the back stitch, split stitch, and stem stitch...along with a few lazy daisies and french knots. But I was intrigued by the wheatear stitch and found this wonderful stitch school.
So if you are like me who is adding embroidery to any bit of cloth that moves, then learn some wonderfully-lovely vintage-y stitches that you may not have tried before. Learning new things is good for the mind, the fingers, and for the soul :)
