Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party, where we value the slow process of creating with our own hands. If you knit, bead, hand quilt, cross stitch, embroider, tat, applique, hook rugs, hand piece quilt blocks, or enjoy english paper piecing (did I miss anything?!) you will find other like-minded stitchers here!
Every once in a while I come across something beautiful that I want to share with you and recently I saw this gorgeous stitch art piece called "The Embroiderers" by Ercigoj Art measuring approximately 24" x 30".
I cannot explain why I love this piece so much. I know it's popular now, but "machine embroidery" seems like such an oxymoron to me. Yet here is a piece made by machine incorporating thousands of stitches, taking over 300 hours to construct and picturing women doing embroidery by hand. WOW!
This week I finished my Morewood Mystery quilt and hand stitched 264" of binding. It was fun to stitch a pink and orange binding.
And since then, I've been slow to pick up another project. I always feel a little lost after a big finish, but I'm sure I'll find something to put stitches into today. We are under a 28 day "stay at home" order in Ontario, so I won't be going anywhere. Since a lot of the outdoor yard work is already done, that means it's a day of stitching ahead.
What are you hand stitching this week? We'd love to see what you are working on and hope you will link up your blog post below.
