Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. The time between Christmas and New Year is often time to slow down, relax and rejuvenate. For me it is the time that I do the most planning for the year to come. December/January usually see me in one place for more than a few weeks at a time and it is when I can get a lot of work done. This year will be no different and I have a number of things in the works for 2016 that I will be able to share soon.
One of these projects has had me dust off my embroidery skills. I, like many, made an embroidery sampler when I was quite small, primary school age, and have always done some sort of stitching. In the last few weeks, I have been taping videos of some of this which has not proven to be all that easy. Anyway, I am not going to share my videos just yet, but I found a simple and quick one on Youtube that covers off on seven basic stitches.
It is here:
Why have I shared an embroidery video today? Well, that is because today’s special is on Christmas Stitcheries.
If you buy any of our Stitcheries by Bird Brain Designs in the next two days, I will give you half a metre of gorgeous ‘Snow’ Kona cotton to stitch it on plus a ball of DMC Christmas Red Size 8 Perle thread free.
Here is the link to the website: http://www.uniquestitching.com.au/c/4547190/1/embroidery-and-stitching.html.
There is still time to make some nice decorations and these, either as patterns or finished, will make great stocking stuffers. Here are some of the patterns to give you an idea.
