A new stitch along by Stitchdoodles has started for October.
After downloading the pattern and transferring it to material with the light box I’m ready to stitch.
You can find the pattern here if you want to join in, daily or at your rate.
This week I purchased a new embroidery thread storage container from Michaels with a 40% off coupon. Up to now I’ve kept my thread on homemade flat bobbins and will gradually transfer them all onto the new bobbins. My homemade ones are great, but do tend to be different in size. I won’t be throwing them away, but using them in my sewing box if this container gets full.
The idea is to stitch one of the leaves every day during the month of October. As I use different colours I will transfer the thread to a new bobbin. The first leaf is all stitched in fly stitch and backstitch in green.
Here is a fabulous resource for finding different embroidery stitches – RSN Stitchbank.
I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.
