Sneak Peek - What's in My Hoop

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

It may be the holiday season, but I'm thinking ahead, creating new hand embroidery projects for everyone to stitch in the new year.

Currently in my hoop is this Be Mine, Valentine project. It's a counted thread sampler utilizing almost a dozen stitches featured this past year in the Stitch of the Week feature here on the blog. The simple design is accented with seed beads and charms.

Some of the stitches used in the design include a beaded version of the double feather, the counted straight stitch, long armed cross and more!

The pattern and directions for working the project will be posted later this month, so you'll have plenty of time to print and stitch the design for Valentine's Day.

If it’s the goodie in the photo then I’m ready to see more. A very practical way to use all those fun specialty stitches.
