|coffee and stitching|
These are the beverages enjoyed during a visit with family from Michigan last weekend. A visit to Tim's is always on the agenda!
I have finally made some progress with my embroidery project. I was hung up on the snowman block, tired of winter weather happening in the spring, and not wanting to finish it. I decided to buckle down and get the snowman block finished while we visited.
It was finally time to trace another block pattern using my fancy light box/window. I tape the pattern to the window, then tape the fabric on top of the pattern, and trace the design using a frixion pen. When the stitching is done, the marks easily disappear with heat. Sometimes the pen does result in a faint white line which is no problem since the line is hidden under the floss stitches.
I've been playing with layout ideas this week and wondered if these pastel batik frames might be nice for these sweet embroidery blocks.
