Before I get to what’s happening in my sewing room this week, I want to thank everyone who linked up their projects for my new Stitchery Link Party being held in conjunction with Vintage Embroidery Monday. The party is open until Sunday night at midnight so if you’ve got a project that you’d like to share, I’d love to have you come link up.
It doesn’t have to be something you’re working on right now. It could be something you completed a while ago.
Or it could even be a project that you’ve remembered is tucked away in need of finishing. Posting about it and linking up could be a great incentive to bringing it back to life and into use.
And don’t worry… if you don’t have something to link up this week, this is going to be a weekly party. I’ve got ideas brewing for some themed stitchery parties and even some giveaways.
I know it will take time to build and get the word out. So I also want to thank the sweet ladies who wrote blog posts to let their readers know about it. I can’t tell you how much that touched my heart and was truly appreciated!
This “Seeds of Friendship” embroidery was completed on our trip back from spending the winter in Florida back in 2013.
I tried something new at the time in that before leaving on our trip, I traced out a bunch of embroideries to work on while on the road and in hotel and then serged around the edges to keep the fabric from fraying. Kona cotton is my favorite fabric to embroider on but it does have the tendency to fray. Serging the edges worked like a charm!
I’ve had the bolster pillow form it’s draped on for years. It’s time to put both of them into use.
Yesterday I started hand-basting my Sampler Table Runner.
I should have the basting finished by the end of today and be ready to start quilting.
And sometime this afternoon I need to remove the rings from these quarts of organic chicken vegetable soup Dave and I pressure canned yesterday. The homemade stock for the soup simmered on the back burner of the stove all day Monday.
The jars will get a quick wipe down with a damp cloth and dried before being taken down to the cold room. They’ll make a nice quick lunch for us some rainy spring day.
What are you working on today?
