Slow Sunday Stitching
Welcome to the weekly linky party where we celebrate the art of hand stitching!
I am working on my hand embroidery project that is well into it's second year of production. I took this hilarious photo while working on a block at the beach. You know how your eyes see a certain view and you take a photo that is nothing like what you had envisioned?!? I was stitching a sailboat at the beach, when I spotted a sailboat on the lake.
I thought wouldn't that be a cool photo to have an actual boat and a stitched boat in the same shot?!?!
It sure would be!
Can you see the boat on the horizon just to the right of the pink hoop?
Of course not, because it's microscopic.
A+ for effort and F for the end product! LOLOL
I am stitching these embroidery designs on the edge trimmed from the muslin backing of the "Red Repro Broken Dishes" quilt.
Here's the finished boat block. I stitched a "K" on the mast flag just for fun.
Remember that the 7th birthday party of Slow Sunday Stitching is coming up on June 23rd, so make sure you put that on your virtual calendar! It won't be an in person event, but that is my dream to one day host a Slow Sunday Stitching retreat day.
Link up your blog post below and share the hand stitching project you are working on.
