We welcome artists of all types. Yes you! The definition of "artist" is: a person engaged in an activity related to creating art, practicing the arts, or demonstrating an art.
You are an artist if you have ever picked up a needle and thread and tried to make something with it. Your results may not have been stellar, A+, earth shattering brilliance, but it's a creative place to start your artistry.
This week I am starting a new hand stitched embroidery project. I admit that I already have a couple of hand stitching projects on the go, but not an embroidery one, so I "need" one of those at all times!
The new project is by Gail Pan, an Australian pattern designer, who just started a project called "I stitch club". It's a mystery quilt project with 36 stitching designs, 3 per month. I started on the bee hive block and this is how far I am at the moment.
I'm just using up floss scraps and making it a multicolour project. Should I show you my extraordinary organizational system for floss?
I have been enjoying a wonderful weekend visit with my long time quilty friend Louise. We have been doing some hand stitching together and welcoming the peace it brings to our very busy lives. I put in some embroidery stitches and Louise is knitting a pillow cover with this beautiful yarn.
What are you hand stitching today? Link up your blog post below and share your progress with us.
