STITCH CLUB JOURNAL ENTRIES
i've been stitching along on the november #cozybluestitchclub pattern. this mandala has some detailed linework, but the stitching itself is really simple.
i'm just finishing up this moth design. for the stars in the background, i've used a mix of seed stitches and colonial knots,
his moth and moon is our stitch club pattern for october. the pattern grew out of a screenprint design that i made a few years ago as part of my 'stargazing' series.
this sweet owl is my newest pattern, and our september stitch club project!
i've started stitching a little, and here's what i've got so far:
if you're just not that into satin stitch, you are not alone. and you're in luck! because there are so many other great stitches that you can use to fill your embroidery designs.
i love barn quilts, and i have wanted to make an embroidered version (or as it turns out, two versions) for such a long time.
i had satin stitch in mind when i made this one, and i really like the smooth, strong texture that it creates.
this month's pattern is all about simple stitching and fun color. i kept the design to a minimum but added a hand drawn layer of color that peeks through the stitched lines.
here's my june lagoon, the june stitch club pattern, all stitched and finished and framed up!
and if you want to stitch it too, you can find the PDF pattern here.
i finished up my galaxy girl! i added more stars to her big, beautiful hair to give the galaxy more dimension, and i really LOVE how it turned out.
have you seen our february pattern for #cozybluestitchclub yet?
