thursday = embroidery

What a coincidence that my interview on Feeling Stitchy is posted on a Thursday which is my day to talk about embroidery here!

{if you’ve come here via that interview & my blog is new to you I hope you enjoy it, come back again soon & leave a little comment to say hi!}

Right now I’m in between embroidery projects so I thought I’d share something I did awhile ago:


When my friend became pregnant I decided I really wanted to make a crib quilt even though my sewing skills were basic at best & I had never before taken on such a big project. It actually went pretty well & I was very happy with the way it came out.

I used this pattern for the embroidery & added the numbers myself. {counting sheep to fall asleep…get it?!}




The fabrics were mostly from my vintage stash, although I bought a big piece of the blue & white dot for the back & that strip on the front. Oh, and that little piece of red fabric under the first sheep is from Joann’s.

Those lambies (that's what they're called in our house) are so adorable! And I'm in love with the cow on the pattern. We're a big farm house.

have you ever tried using any of the old textile prints? I see them now and then and often wonder if they still work.

Glad tohear you are a messy crafter too. Love the quilt - It's nice to see baby stuff that isn't all pastel colours. Great idea for the sheep too!

So sweet! You are the reason I picked up 3 "Vogart Embroidery Color Charts" at a garage sale last week. I knew I saw the company name somewhere before, lol.
