Hello! How are you doing? Did you happen to see my last blog post? If so, you’ll know that I shared a little snippet of my latest hand embroidery pattern & tutorial whilst I was working hard to finish it. Well, I’m pleased to tell you it’s done and it’s now listed on my Etsy store as an instant download, yay!
I know I say this about all of the hoops I make, but this one really was a labour of love. I saw the quote ‘One day at a time’ several months ago online and it really resonated with me as an anxiety sufferer. I knew I had to make it into a gorgeous design and release it as a pattern, as I’m sure there are lots of embroiderers out there who will love stitching it and may also find comfort in the words.
Here’s a closer look. I’m definitely tempted to embroider similar quotes which will give me more opportunity to experiment with embroidered text. This is the third hoop I’ve experimented with embroidered typography and it’s quite a skill to master. I think my most favourite part of the hoop though was the pale green leaves. I used fishbone stitch for the leaves and I find it to be such a therapeutic stitch.
It’s only a short post today, but I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my latest work. Have you discovered any quotes recently that have helped you? Leave a comment below and let me know, I’d love to read them. It may just give me some inspiration for my next design.
Bye for now, take care.
