Welcome to the weekly hand stitching celebration! We hope you will join us - get out a project, some needles and thread/yarn and start stitching.
It's the middle of the summer here and the weather has been perfect for outdoor stitching.
July 30th was "World Embroidery Day" and I celebrated by putting some stitches into my new tea towel project. This is another fun pattern from Stitcher's Revolution.
There are 2 concerns with outdoor stitching:
1) Pay attention - you can be so relaxed that you make mistakes! I got carried away with the green banner stitching and stitched the corner of the blue bowl with the green floss. See where the needle is pointing? Ooops... thankfully it was a quick fix.
2) Beware of outdoor wildlife - always look before you stick your hand in the floss box! I always do look first because bees love the bright colours of embroidery thread as much as we do. Luckily no stitcher was stung in taking this photograph!
I was so delighted to have some stitching time with my daughter this past week.

**Sorry about the coding problem with Inlinkz this morning. It took me a bit of time to solve but I think I've fixed it now.
