Welcome back for Week no. 9! 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!
We had a preview of Spring here in the Northeast this week and everything about the colors on my Stitch Along piece makes me think of warmer weather! I added a few straight stitches to the upper portion of my hoop this week.
These threads are the BRAND NEW colors from Sue Spargo. It’s obvious that #ihavethisthingwiththread, right?! So I couldn’t wait to break out these colors: Soldier Boy on the left and Hoppytoad on the right, both in size 5.
Let’s see what our stitchers have been up to this week!
I noticed a geometric theme with some our our Stitch Along hoops this week and so that’s what i’m featuring today!
@willowandtroutmakerie added some fun texture to this hexie fabric with silk ribbon bees…how fun are they?!
@leighbee279 is highlighting those hexie shapes with a neon green backstitch! Love that additional pop of color!
This is one of my favorite Anna Maria Horner fabrics (although I don’t have this color way!!!), and @mamacesare is adding the Fly Stitch and Palestrina Knots to her hoop. Love the addition of red!!!
The Trellis Stitch that @stitchingkat is adding to this Kaffe Fassett is just…WOW! I love every bit of this!
Remember last week I said I had been working on a hoop for Heather Givans? Well, here it is at QuiltCon!
I used the center section of the Reading Circle EPP pattern from Heather to create this 10″ hoop and I made it using the mock-EPP method that I demonstrated in my book.
The Grafic fabric from Latifah Saafir is seriously amazing and I was looking for an excuse to use it in another project!
Make sure to check out the #readingcircleepp hashtag so that you can see the gorgeous roundup of (full-size) projects created for the Crimson Tate booth at QuiltCon.
Now before I go, how about a challenge for all of you Boho Stitch Along-ers out there!
Are you nosy….I mean curious like me and want to see the tools, threads, cases that other stitchers use on a daily basis?
Here’s what one of my stitchy ArtBins looked like last week while I was knee deep in three different projects!
And scrolling through the stitch along feed, I came across this little gem from @andreatebs.
So there’s your challenge. An easy one, right?!
Now, back to stitching….
Have a great week!
