I’ve been having some stitching withdrawals lately…
I used to always have a cross stitch project hooped up and waiting.
After purchasing fabrics for my new sewing/quilting addiction
I haven’t had money left to buy the linen and variegated threads necessary for cross stitching.
And those items can be costly…$25-40 to work up a small cross stitch pattern and then there is the frame =0(
both with LOVELY embroidery goodness!
I just ordered this yummy book from Amazon HERE which I found on Georgia’s blog Stitchlings.
She also has a great pillowcase embroidery tutorial HERE
and has inspired me to make a few of these for my neice and nephews for Christmas this year!
And not to be missed are the adorable embroidery patterns from Comfortstitching at her Etsy Shop HERE!
I just picked up her Scoot pattern and will be making some “grown up” embroidered pillow cases with it =0)
(And be sure to check out her Girl on a Tree Mini Quilt Tutorial HERE because it is seriously FABULOUS!)
I’ve already got my hoops and white fabric (and lots of new patterns!)
and with a few inexpensive skeins of DMC floss (like 30 cents a piece!)
I’ll be on my way to stitching bliss!
