thursday = embroidery

I thrifted a bunch of these crazy quilt blocks at an estate sale recently & wanted to try doing a simple line drawing embroidery on one:


I think a series hung together would look very nice so I will have to add that to my list of things to do.

moving onto today's embroidery sample:



this little house would be a great design to embroider for a house warming gift...

{in addition to the house I'm posting the other 5 designs on flickr}

happy stitching!

Beautiful! I love the boldness of simple line embroidery, especially on a patterned background.

Thanks for showing the house one. I love houses in art. This house reminds me of Mary Engelbreit.

Love the juxtaposition of the stark black lines of the camera against the soft colors of the quilt. Very cool
