Welcome back for Week no. 14! If you are just beginning a piece for the #BohoSAL, check out my previous posts here. And if you are new to embroidery and want to learn the basics, check out my embroidery book, Boho Embroidery for everything you need to get started!
Happy April! I think Spring might finally be headed our way!
For my stitch along piece this week, I picked up my Anna Maria Horner “Fibs and Fables” hoop again. I’m thoroughly enjoying the slow pace of stitching this large hoop. I am in no rush to finish, like I am many of my projects, so I can take my time deciding where to go next with the embroidery!
This week I decided to add texture in the form of beads to this tree.
I just love how it turned out and I’m debating on whether I want to add more beads to this hoop or leave this as a stand alone piece of texture. The brilliant thing?? I don’t have to decide right away, do I?!
I hope you are all enjoying the slow pace of stitching your Boho Stitch Along hoop too!
I spent time at Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington, NJ this weekend teaching a Boho Embroidery workshop and had such a nice time with a really fun group of ladies! I love that everyone comes to a workshop with completely different crafting backgrounds: some have never embroidered while others have an embroidery background but dabbled in so many other things that embroidery was pushed out of the way for a while. I really enjoy watching each person form a connection with embroidery.
Have a great week stitching!
