Welcome back for Week no. 21! 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!
For the moment, I can stitch just to stitch and not to meet a deadline, which is really an enjoyable thing…when it happens!
So this week, working with my Gertrude Made fabrics for my #BohoSAL piece, I began to add beads galore to my Boho Stitch Along piece. With a piece like this, I had no specific plan of what I was going to stitch, what stitches to use, etc. I knew I wanted to add a running stitch along the background, so that’s where I began. While I was working on the running stitch, it gave me time to really look at the fabric and decide what my next move would be! Plus, I have all of these great beads in shades of green and I just knew I had to add them somewhere!!
In other news, it’s Spring Quilt Market time! I’m not there, but several of my hoops made the journey to St. Louis
I was really excited to be asked to work with the beautiful Shimmer On fabric by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman.
Here’s a full view of the booth:
And here are a few close ups of the hoops that I made:
I was also asked to make a hoop for Sue Spargo’s booth using my favorite Eleganza threads. Here’s a view of her booth in all it’s colorful gorgeousness and also a close up of the hoop that I made using Heather Bailey’s “Hello Love” fabrics:
I was also thrilled to create a few projects for Andover Fabrics using the upcoming Chroma Handcrafted fabrics from Alison Glass.
And last but not least, here is the Alexander Henry booth and that citron owl hoop is one I was commissioned to make awhile back. I love that hoop! It is complete with a pink tulle skirt and lots of metallic threads throughout!
Don’t forget to check out the tag #Bohosal to see what our other stitch along friends have been up to lately!
Hope you all had a great week and happy stitching!
