Embroidery

Autumnal Stitching Makes My Heart Smile

In my last post I excitedly shared that I was working on a new Autumnal embroidery project. Well, here it is, yay! It’s been at least eight years since I’ve invested a reasonable amount of time on hand embroidery, so over the past couple of months, I’ve been slowly but steadily relearning everything I’ve forgotten along the way. I’ve also learnt some brand new stitches in the process, so I’m giving myself a large pat on the back as I type!

YouTube has been tremendously helpful and there is such an amazing array of inspirational embroidery books out there now – something that was perhaps lacking when I first started embroidering previously.

This particular piece is my own design – it’s been brought to life from an autumnal illustration I designed last year. I love seeing the illustration in a new form and I’m definitely going to be designing more. I’m going to share my creative process with you all soon, from the initial drawing and designing stage to the final stitching and finishing, so keep your eyes peeled for a future post.

In the mean time, please come over to Instagram to catch some sneaky peeks of my day-to-day progress. I wish you all well and I hope this post has given you some cosy, autumnal feels. Time to pop the kettle on?
